Looooooong Pause

Interesting test I thought worth sharing. I had a family emergency come up and had to pause a 10 hour job about 6 hours in. Leroy (my classic maslow) sat paused with router power disconnected and dust collection system off for ~5 days. Once back to it, I powered on the dust collector, put power to the router relay and pressed the pause button to resume and it finished. I thought it was a good test we don’t very often get to try. The cut counter (my modification) kept counting during pause, so the job ended up being 172 hours total. Not too bad for a raspberry pi and webcontrol.
