No, it is that way by design. You cannot cut a clean pocket if the tool is exactly twice the pocket, At least not with the toolpath I use.

Either ask for a .501 pocket, or tell it the mill is .249

Ok, that did it. Latest versions of mach and pokeys, my panel works fine now.

Thanks for all the help.

i believe I do not have the correct plugin for mach. This is an old pokey55- ser no 10804. If I load the 56u files I can communicate with the device via the pokey ap. I have cleared the config and re-loaded with an import. Using the pokeys ap everything seems normal, but I cannot get it to work under mach.

This is a pokey55 and the config screen does not have a Status IO tab. If I use the Pokey55 program it does show the signals changing.

Under Mach when I open the config menu the pins show up as I expect, but the Apply button never enables. If I make a change in the pins it still does not enable.

I think I do not have real communication to the device. I have tried add and remove from the Plugins Config with no change.

One more problem. I got the panel working fine on my desk machine, so I tried to move it to my shop XP machine. I had some trouble finding the correct xml, but I think I have it now. I have the plugin enabled. the config screen shows all the pins I have setup. But none of them actually work.

If I run the pokeys application the test screen shows all the inputs change as expected.

Any suggestions?

Ok, thanks. I plenty of extra pins so I will just skip those.

Ok, buttons work ok. I also had a wiring error.

I still cannot use pins 35,36,37 They seem to be stuck on some output function. I have tried clear the config and reset it.

I have  plenty of extra pins, I will just not use those. This is a rather old PoKey55

I think my panel now does all I want, I will now put in on my machine and try to do some real work with it. Thanks for the help.

Ok, I have most of my PoKey control working, except for the jog functions. I have a series of buttons, for jog X+, jog X-, Jog Y-, etc. I have these as inputs on pins 34 to 41. I have configured these as inputs, and selected the "Input Jog x+" etc.

If I set them to negative inputs, all my DROS run wild, so I know they are working. But if I set them to not be negative inputs, then they do not move the axis.

How do I get the inputs to cause a jog?

Ok, should I be using the standalone PoKeys config software or the mach3 plugin? 

I do not plan to use a keyboard, just single input pins, mostly from a couple rotary switches.

i am trying to build a control panel with a pokeys 55. Just to test I have set pin 1 and 2 as inputs, to LED 301 and 302. I have put the 2 leds on my screen. When I connect the switch to ground pin 1 or pin 2 the pokeys I/O status screen shows them work, but the leds on the screen do not change.

I  intend to test these LEDs in a macro pump and  set some DRos. My VB script does not see the LEDs change.

What am I missing?

The config screen shows pins 35,36,37 as outputs, and 35 keeps blinking. I have not configured anything on these pins, and the setup screen shows them as unused. Why are they active?
