Jogging the spindle using a wireless keypad on Chilipeppr.

I’m not absolutely sure, but I think most CNC programs out there allow for jogging with the arrow keys, so this should technically work for different software.

You can do this by remapping the Numpad’s keys to corresponding jog keys for the program you’re using to control your CNC.

Programs for remapping keys:
