The MT510 itself is set to a fixed IP address via its configuration menu. The controlling CPU uses DHCP, but the DHCP server always assigns it the same IP address based on its MAC address. Both are connected to the net via the WRT54GL above the table; that access point also serves the shop QuickStation via a long cable running off to the right. It's that access point which actually gets everything in the shop onto the wireless net and hence on our network. Do not disconnect it or turn it off, or the mill will come off the net. If that happens, the SolidWorks installation on the mill CPU won't be able to start up, because it uses a floating network license. Note that even a brief disconnection (a minute or two) will cause the HSMWorks floating license to fail, causing HSMWorks itself to close, even if the rest of Solidworks is still up.

Note the time for the cutting; cost for cutting is $5 per use, with $20/hour of spindle time, rounding up to 5 minute time intervals ($1.67/every 5 minutes). So, if you cut a part that takes 4 minutes to cut, that's $5 + $1.67 = $6.67. If you cut 5 such parts, the total cost is $5 + 20 minutes of spindle time, or $5 + $6.67 = $11.67.
