    Based on your earlier posts it looks like you tried M37, M38, M39 for gear selection? I can't find anything in our manuals referencing using M40, M41, M42 commands. On our M4 if we try to input anything other than M38 the machine will flat out shut down.
    Can you run the spindle and change gears in mdi with those same #'s ? Jess

    I'm looking into this.

    Machine has been in the shop for 30 years and no one on the floor knows how to use it in MDI yet. Pretty sweet.

    That's interesting . Maybe I am doing something stupid trying in MDI. On another note I found a tool box with very small push in fuses ? and a pair of small keys , have not found what the key fits yet. The fuses appear to be for the main pc board , looking at that closely. Thanks for the help. Jess

    Fanuc used those fuses all over. The servo drives and spindle drive on my mill use them too.
