    Default 04 tm1 - can it be run manually using the red handles?

    Ive searched around a bit, and cannot find an answer. obviously, who would want to do so, my stubborn old man who is stuck in the manual ways.

    Can the red manual mill style handles on the x and y ballscrews be operated after setting z height and turning on the spindle?

    The only time I’ve ever been able to move axes on a TM-1 manually is with the control powered off. Machining with the red wheels would be the epitome of a PITA.
