Thanks, Steve. Yes, I’m able to move the various axes with the LCD. That’s what I expected to do when it came time for the tool change, but I only had the LCD and probably clicked something wrong on my way to the Move Axis menu, because the program resumed with the DW660 switched off. By the time I killed the program, moved everything around and got the new bit in, there was no way to get back to where I was – at least, not without pulling the SD card, editing the gcode to delete what had already been done, rezero the machine, etc. I would have much better control with gcodes sent through repetier host, so I think I will get a computer set up for that – I have an old laptop standing by, just haven’t gotten around to making a space for it.

Has anyone tried using repetier server with the MPCNC?
