    Thanks Steve.

    Here's the spindle warm up routine I use.

    The pause numbers are the ones Frank gave me to use. Seems to be working well. No spindle problems in almost 9 years, KNOCK ON WOOD!!! I hope I didn't just jinx myself...

    Did I miss it? I just run a C5 (built in spindle warmup routine in ShopBot 3 software) before I start running cut files.
