    New Control Build with Mach 4 - Flooding control

    I am currently doing a full rebuild of my control gear for my 6090 CNC and upgrading to MACH4.
    During testing (in simulator mode) I noticed that the flood & mist control don't turn off when emergency stop is active.
    Is this normal behavior? Would have though a E-Stop would shut down everything.

    Going to use flood (M8) to control my dust extractor so want it to shut down when E-Stop is hit.

    Hi,
    Mach4s Estop stops all axis motion and spindle. If you want other items to stop or behave in some specific fashion add the appropriate script
    to the <Estop> button.

    Much appreciated Craig. Will put my scripting hat on and go digging.
