Hi, Art

I've been working with a 0.050 cut-off tool and getting mixed results, Have talked with Rich about it and sorta think it's a glitch or a setting some where.

Hi, Art

Very nice progress, Hears a little glitch in the final pass with a cutoff tool, I think.

Hi, Mr.Chips

Run Mach3 exe from the installed location, Usually it's located at C:\mach3 folder, You'll see an option to create additional profiles which will allow you to do what you want.

Hope this helps, Chip

Hi, Ronncat

Have you ever had your mill operating with any computer ever. ?

Could be you don't have a true parallel port  extender cable or it's missing a Gnd Pin, Not all cards and cables use the same pin numbers 18 to 25 are Gnd.pins.

Use an ohm meter to check the cable pin 1-1 2-2 3-3 ........25-25, If not you may have a 25 pin serial cable.
