I'd like it to be:

G53 Z0
G53 X8.5
G53 Y-9
G53 Z-4.5

I know I can set coordinates, but I want it to do it in that specific order.

Thanks in advance if you can teach me how to do this.

General Mach Discussion / Can someone help me with Mach 3 turn tool wear?
« on: December 12, 2008, 05:03:31 PM »
I want to be able to put a number in mach 3 turn if my parts dimensions are creeping due to wear.  I'm currently manually offsetting, and it's getting a lot to remember :)


General Mach Discussion / Help, when I have a spindle speed say 4000
« on: November 22, 2008, 03:06:44 PM »
and then the code takes it to 4200 for finish pass or something and
then the code takes it to 3500, the spindle slows to a stop.

anyway around this? It will speed up, but will not slow down, it
will only stop if a lower rpm is chosen.

i just now checked that if i manually set spidle to 4000 and click the spindle speed down button, it shuts it off.  this is on a tormach.

can anyone duplicate this?

Say I put an edge finder in the machine and then set spindle to 2000 RPM and hit "spindle".  It takes about 5 seconds before I can jog to a new position.

I need that to be zero, cause when I try to tap at the bottom of the tap, the machine runs the spindle in reverse, bud does not feed back up till it runs the spindle for about 5 seconds destroying the threads I just put in.

I get how to set z zero, but I can not tell, is x zero from the center of the part?  Or "touched" at the outside diameter?  Can someone please call me at 512-656-2357 and answer a couple of rudimentary questions I have about mach 3 turn?  I have been running my CNC lathe as a "mill" for the past few months, and I've decided this week that I will start running my lathe as a lathe using mach 3 turn.

here is my lathe being run from mach 3 MILL!


The link for the screen editor is not working, does anyone have an updated link?

plugin under the menu items in Mach 3.

Thanks in advance for the help, I was able to download the plugin file.  Just don't know what to do with it now


Can someone show me the thread that describes how to do this, or please explain it to me in terms a 10 year old can understand?

I would greatly appreciate it.  I need to know what program to put into mach three to autoposition like it is doing and also need to understand the electrical circuit, along with where those wire's go on the parrallel chord to the computer for the power and feedback.
