How to set max tool diameter for Stepcraft CNC?

I have a Stepcraft M.1000 with the MM-1000 spindle and automatic tool changer, I am just now trying to set up.  When I calculate a tool path with my v-carving bit (1/4" shank, 1/2" max diameter, 60° inclusive angle) I get a warning that says,

 

"Warning: Tool diameter is larger than the maximum diameter supported for tools in this machine. (Stepcraft - M.1000.mch)"

 

I can't find anything in the machine definition or post processor that allows me to set this for my machine.  It's just a warning, but I'd very much like it to go away. 😃

Check your Machine Settings, Kinematics and Spindle. There you can adjust the maximum diameter.
Screenshot is in German but you'll figure it out.
