Thanks! I haven't cracked open the file yet, but if you're able to elaborate on what you changed in the file to cancel out or allow manual mode, I'd appreciate it. Id really like to understand some of the content of these scripts. What manual would I refer to if I wanted to make my own script like this?

( an old thread yes, but I was wanting to do the same today )
( SO I boched up this bit of G-code )

( Position the head over each hole in turn and use tool change )
( commands to pause the g-code while we manually tap that hole. )

( Manually adjust Z to be higher than anything, then test it.)
( After testing, place Z close to your work )

( M05 Ensure the spindle is not running, or dissable it with a key, in Tormach PCNC exists a lockout Key )
