    Hi my hand router broke and I need to program my ELU 860 CNC by hand as I have not got it working from the computer yet. I need to do a circle with a 90mm diameter and a cut out depth of 18mm. Can any one tell me what code I need to insert to achieve this?
    I would appreciate any help.

    I'd be inclined to spiral down counterclockwise for a hole, clockwise for a spigot. The only missing data for a G code is tool diameter and start point.

    If you program a G code arc which ends at it's start point the machine goes full circle.
