Default warm up

we have the 5 hp spindle on our new ptr-404. I seem to remember reading back a ways that the ceramic bearings could use a little slower warm up. can anyone point me in the direction of those macro changes?

thank in advance. I don't know where I'd be without this forum... oh yeah, I know. up the proverbial creek!

I don't have WinCNC speed control so I do it manually. However, this file is in my macro folder. You might have one too?
