    Greetings Rob! I have the programmable coolant on a few of machines, I'll try to check that out tomorrow. It is painfully slow and you can hear the pump "dead head" when it comes on if it has been sitting for a while. There is a setting that will delay movement until the spindle comes up to speed, it makes sense there may be a coolant delay as well. Good thinking and hello!

    I hope all is well and you are still making your beautiful reels. Your talents have always been appreciated and your personal advice and help can never be repaid. Some day we have to tip glasses :cheers:

    SBS TY
    if I could the first Z rapid as I program at 20,that is just the right time for coolant to be working

    Now if if I could get all the Z rapids that follow to go say 50 that is what I was after

    Without hand editing that is

    I am on V 28

    I've just re-worked the plumbing on my VMC and it now takes 1s to good flow and 2s to full flow after leaving it overnight!

    Re: OT I've been a bit busy with other things.

    I kinda figured as much
    That pause I described hard coded into the first tool change block of your PP as I described will allow you to set the correct delay for fluid to lift prior to your first cut though.

    I should add,also along with your fix in block 2,you must also do it in block 3,which pertains to after a tool change.

    Cool, sounds good!
    A shorter pause after the system primes at the first tool perhaps?

    One way Solenoid Valve fired by the same relay/contactor that does the coolant pump maybe ???
    The line would remain full, no drain back.
