Rapid Feed Button
Explanation:
That's what our machine shop calls this function.

Could also use "fast feed" or "coarse feed".

The direction is implied, so you don't need the word "forward." If you're moving backwards you're retracting, not feeding.

Excellent, thanks, that's brilliant, especially given that it's an actual term used in a US machine shop :-)

agree  xxxhazmatgerman: I'd go with "coarse", as "grob" is exactly that not "fast".
