Typing Z0 will lower the bit to the spoilboard as you noticed, you then typed M37Z0 (you stated nothing happened) .... It set a blue box next to you Z ... this means it set Z0 to the top of the spoilboard ...... the machine did not move, I agree

At the end, I type in Z0 and the bit lowers to the table

I then type in M37Z0 as asked and absolutely nothing happens...

I would assume that the machine would calibrate the switch again with the bit, however WinCNC does not respond to the command, i.e. it does not display anything on the display.

Am I missing something?

It doesn't matter.

Select different machines in the drop down and see what changes. Feed rate.

Just enter your table size,bit, feeds and speeds. Then save the file.

I have .005 and .010 depth of cut files saved for resurfacing my table.

You can do this with Vectric as well. Make a cut file and save it to run whenever you need it.
