While in Stepconf, when I reach to page with Spindle setup, I choose 0Hz to enter PDM mode. There are few settings there like: Speed 1, Speed 2, PWM 1 and PWM 2. If I change PWM1 from 0.1 to 0.4 then in Axis UI when I type G0 Z10 for example, it does not travel 10mm thus I have to change PWM1 and PWM2 until I find exact ratio. Why is that?

Hmmm ... that seems not right, changing spindle PWM should have no effect on Z axis motion at all, so how?
Do you have speed control for the spindle?

No, I do not have any speed control. My spindle is actually a hand held router that has markings for speed (1,2,3, ...) that I have to adjust manually depending on the material that is being cut.
