Add wait cycle with M8

Is there a way to make the post processor add a wait cycle after doing an M8
We have an old machine and the coolant takes a while to start flowing through the nozzles, we have been doing it by hand but would save alot of time on the machine if we could automate it, we are using the generic heidenhain post processor for 530

Hi, can you share the used post processor and add the standby code manually.

yes that would be fine just needs to be before the tool comes into contact with material

If you edit as in the image, you will get the output of the post I sent. I achieved it by adding the onDwell code to the first Z move. onDwell(second)

You should check for other coolant options. I think I made a way for you
