Okay so I've further edited the PP like so. On the tool change 'event' if it's a drill operation then add an M0 pause command, And if it's a cut operation, but the cutType veriable was previously set to 'Spotting' then add another M0 pause.

Am I creating any issues with this approach? Also, is there a way to open a pop up message box to instruct the user?
function OnToolChange()
...
    elseif string.match (toolName, 'Centre Spot') or
           string.match (toolName, 'Center Spot') or
           string.match(operationClass, 'DrillOperation') then
        cutType = 'Spotting'
        cutName = 'spot'
        spindleNum = 2
        toolNum = 0
        post.Text (' M0 (********** TURN THE PLASMA CUTTER DOWN TO 10 AMPS FOR SPOTTING **********)\n')
    else
        if cutType == 'Spotting' then
            post.Text (' M0 (********** SET PLASMA CUTTER TO APPROPRIATE AMPERAGE **********)\n')
        end
...
    end
