2019 Lathe Spindle not restarting after tailstock retract

Recommended Posts

Is this a post issue or is there a setting I am missing? maybe a misc. integer?

This is what I get when I post the whole program...

(PART OFF)
G97 S784
G50 S1000
G96 S400
X1.95 Z-4.0625
G01 X1.7537
 

This is what I get when I post just that operation

Yes there needs to be some work done to the post or try a force tool change on the operation after and see if that helps.

The force tool change does work, thank you for the advice, now to get this post worked on...
