Another suggestion for using one of the Aux pins.
When my Maslow messes up, it’s usually because the chain fouled and gets tangled in itself. When this happens, I need to do three things.
- Stop the chain from getting worse
- hit the “Hold” button (but the machine keeps going until the end of the current command)
- Stop the router from cutting while it’s out of position.
This requires me to be in three places at once.
Could we wire up a hardware button (BIG RED button, preferably :P) to immediately STOP the current command, power off the spindle (if we add that function), and the dust collection (if that’s there too).
This would stop anything from getting worse, and means you can take your time fixing the things, without fear of messing up your Maslow or current cut.
