This is a version of grbl that supports both spindle and laser based on grbl version 1.0c from Inventables. It contains the original changes by Andrew L. Sandoval to produce grbl version 0.9g for J Tech as well as some optimizations that I included for the laser functions.
Thanks to Jeff @picengravertoo and John @JohnChamplain for their help in testing this new version.
There are two build versions.
The first version (release 11/12/2016) is the base version for spindle and laser.
The second version (release 9/1/2017) is a modification of the first release to change the Dwell (G4) to allow smaller increments for Dwell.
The first version uses the standard 50ms floor with 50ms steps for the dwell and the second version uses a 1ms floor and 1ms steps.
9/1/2017 - added version with Dwell change
10/12/2016 - update (bug fix) ghosting
9/28/2016 - original release
