Here's a pretty good reference Brucer

EMC2 "G-Code" Quick Reference (http://linuxcnc.org/docs/html/gcode.html)

If you don't like Gadgets list, do a search for "CNC G code" on the net. There are plenty of others.

the emc2 codes that you listed are basic g-codes for a mill and or lathe..... what i dont get is why i cant find a g-code list for a cnc plasma anywhere..

for instance, m3 and m4 on a mill are spindle on clockwise and spindle on counter clockwise..... yet on a cnc plasma a m3 and m4 is torch on cw and torch on ccw pertaining to cut path....

m14 and m15 isnt listed anywhere... on the burny cnc controller i've been fooling with, m14 and m15 is thc enable and thc disable..

it might be the m14 and m15 is being used as proprietary to the controller (custom m-code)

thanks guys...
we got the machine doing some basic shapes and such... its not running correct at the moment, the table is running good. but the thc isnt...
seems like either we dont have the thc setup correct, or we dont have a good ground or something.. we'll mess with it again next week..

heres a short video, you can see at the end when the torch raises up and moves to start another cut the torch doesnt ignite, so we called it quits for the evening..

It looks like you are using EMC2, is that right? EMC2 has some support now for THC. However, after trying to find the link I found the linuxcnc site links don't work at this time.
