caution: Unless you specify otherwise, this canned cycle uses the most recently commanded spindle direction (M03, M04, or M05). If the program did not specify a spindle direction before it commands this canned cycle, the default is M03 (clockwise). If you command M05, the canned cycle will run as a “no-spin” cycle. This lets you run applications with self-driven tools, but it can also cause a crash. Be sure of the spindle direction command when you use this canned cycle.
