Looks good .
Have the panel off my lathe at the moment, once I get the new one wired and rewrite the ladder  I will give it a test.

Where's Dave PHIL ???
This one would be a good addition to the flyout screen in your lathe screen along with all the other wizards.

Well I was able to break away and give this a run on my lathe. Everything works as it should. :) I am however disappointed that peck drilling doesn't rapid back in and feed from the last point.  Anyone know if we can create our own canned cycles? I want the correct G-code not a new M-code. I didn't wanna rewrite a post to make this work from within my cam program. Also, what lathe screen are you guys using? I have been slowly reworking the stock 1024 screen to suit my needs. Very plain and lacking. been toying with the idea of creating one that mimics my Haas TL-1. All wizards right at your fingertips.  Love to see what others have done.

I redid the peck drilling code to make it how it should be. Now it will correctly drill to peck depth, rapid back to z start, rapid back to .0005 away from the last peck depth then feed to the next peck increment. I couldn't stand the slow feed back into the hole. Takes way too long. Let me know what you guys think.

I dont think I had an issue with peck drilling on the lathe before, if you look at this vid about 1min 20 secs in is that what it should do? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ced7Ei2F7I

Edit
 Ok forget that, just looked at the code and it was written long hand.

Sorry, was looking at the wrong code ::) it was indeed a G83 cycle being used in that vid and seemed to me to work fine. Code was G83X0Z-122Q10.0F0.2
Will have to run the file once I get the panel wired just to make sure.

Afraid I have not had a chance to mess much with the macros but did test the pecking  and it worked fine.

Hood, what did you test? My wizard or your code you already had that you said worked fine? If it was the wizard... what version did you use? I tried the G83 canned cycle and it rapids out and feeds all the way back in. It doesn't rapid to just before the last peck and then feed the next peck. I have used the 1.3 version and it does exactly as I need. Its much faster as long as your drill bit is lined up correctly. :) It works just like my Haas lathe. Is there a plug-in that will let me write my own G-Code macros? I think I remember reading poppabear was working on something of the sort but I am unable to locate the post.

It was the version you posted in post 13.
Normally I just use the macro in Mach itself but tried this out today. Didnt actually drill anything as I was testing a new version of Mach at the time and didnt want to risk my U Drill ;D

Dont know about the plugin I am afraid, maybe best to email Scott and see.
