    Citizen A20 question

    Hey guys they are running a Citizen A20 at my new work. I was wondering if there is a spindle lock code / option on these machines?

    To lock the spindle you just need to engage the "C" axis.
    M18C0 (on the main spindle)
    M48C0 (on the sub spindle)

    If you don't have the "C" axis turned on, I have used m3s1=0 in the past, and that works as well.
