Because you set Safe Z to 1.5 on the tool select screen. Its on the lower right side of the tool select screen.

The NfsTurn wizard uses the terms Start and End to indicate the first and last cut to make. So entering the Xstart value will determine the first cut made and Xend will be the finish size. I first had Xstart to be the stock size, but that confused people so I made it to be the first cut. I dont know what the other wizard does.

It looks like the other wizard stops Z a cut distance away form the  final size, then makes a final pass. There are lots of different strategies to use in making a wizard, I guess we each pick one and do it that way.

The 008.zip file is the latest, I guess I forgot to update the version number in the code.

The mach screen designer will let you add any button to any screen. If the button is on one of the Newfangled wizard screens it will be locked to code editing.

If it is to show the H number you dont want a button, you want a DRO.

There are two screen designers, Machscreen is my favorite. Get it from http://www.kd-dietz.com/klausphp/pages/eng/machscreen/description/ms_description.html

Sorry I have not answered this sooner.

I think it is the Microsoft redistributable package. see http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29 for the download for 32bit systems.

Unless you are mixing units and programming the wizard in mm on a machine setup in inches it is simply not possible for the wizard to make a longer move. The wizard simply writes gcode. Use the MDI bar and enter a move, like G1 z1 and see if Z moves exactly 1 inch.

Have you installed mach3 in a folder other than C:\Mach3 ? I use that test to weed out the Tormach version.

Otherwise I cannot explain why it does not read the description. I simply have access to a mach3 system call that reads the tool table and the wizard can only display what it gets.
107  Third party software and hardware support forums. / Newfangled Solutions Mach3 Wizards / Re: Using the tooltable option on: January 13, 2015, 04:11:57 PM
The wizard uses a call that returns the tool description field from the tool table. You need to edit the tool table from the mach Config ->ToolTable menu.

If you are running a Tormach system they make a change to the tool table so I cannot get the description in a wizard.

Have you tested the calibration of your machine? When you command a Z move does the machine really move that amount?

The wizard simply generates gode moves, it cannot effect how mach executes that code.

First look at the setting in the general config- do you have it set for automatic tool change? Then look at the M6 macros in your macro folder under your profile name. Also it looks like you entered on 1 in the tool number- for turn operations the tool number must be in the form of 0101 which is the tool number and the offset number to use. When you enter the number in the DRO it will only show as 101, VB likes to wipe off the leading zero.
