M12 applies the brake to the optional 5th axis and M13 releases the brake. The optional 5th axis brake is normally engaged, so the M12 command is only required when an M13 has released the brake.

M12 and M13 activate the optional Auto Air Jet. M12 turns the air blast on and M13 turns the air blast off. M12 Srrr Pnnn (rrr in RPM and nnn is in milliseconds) turns the air blast on for the specified time, rotates the spindle at the specified speed while the air blast is on, then turns off both the spindle and the air blast automatically. The air blast command for the secondary spindle is M112/M113.
