    Spindle will not start

    Yesterday I used the machine and it worked fine.

    Still - I needed to turn on/off the spindle in the spooler by clicking the spindle on off button.

    This morning - I cannot get the spindle to start at all.

    Is there any way I can get some help?

    I got the spindle to start - by changing "controller type" I am using type 2 controller.

    Still - even though the configuration area, has the spindle auto start and auto stop checked ---- the spindle does not stop automatically.

    Yes your controller type should have been REV-2. If not then the spindle won't start. What was it set to ?

    Does the spindle start when you click the spindle start butt on the screen or just not start from a file ?
