Aha, for a MPG...

I don't have a spare for testing, if you have tested it and are happy with it then push a PR.

HI,
I tested MPG code on 7i76e with 7i73 (pendant card) with handwheel and looks fine.

I have one more question. I'm going to adjust the plasma so I can use an oxy fuel torch. I would need to manually adjust the height "z" without the probe and start burning. Scribe is similar. Uses arm delay and on delay. This could be used to preheat the material and then for the cutting itself. Do you think it's a good idea? Do you plan to add oxy fuel support to plasmac? Thanks Martin

Great, thanks.
Edit: I forgot to mention that when you submit a PR could you also increment the version at the very top of qtplasmac_handler.py and also add the change to versions.html which is in the same directory.

I think it is worth experimenting with. I have no oxy gear so I cannot help much...

Do you plan to add oxy fuel support to plasmac? Thanks Martin
I did intend to a long while ago, I got some info from Tommy but I got sidetracked with other things and I probably cannot even find that now. We could certainly take a look later if there is enough interest.

Thanks Tommy, I seem to remember something about gas solenoids... My memory is shot.

Hi Phill,
can I ask you to commit new PR? I added a scale for better MPG settings for overriding the Z height.
Some MPGs are too sensitive to adjust Z heigt.
Many thanks.
Martin
