Just wondering if anyone knows how to set mach3 to metric, i am using a taig cnc mill,
 i tried to figure it out but i can't even find any info on the taigs leadscrew turns etc.
I bought it second hand so it has no documentation with it ???.

Any help is appreciated,

Hello everyone

I'd really appreciate some help.  I really can't wait to start making stuff but my machine keeps acting up.
I have a taig cnc mill and am currently having some trouble with it, well, i'm not sure if its the controller or mach 3 thats causing the problems >:(.

I seem to have 3 problems (the machine that is not me, i have a lot more than that ;)) -

1: The X and Y axes are working but i have no response out of the Z or A axes, i've checked the Z and A motors by wiring them up to the X and Y ports and they work fine, i've also checked the pinouts and they seem to be correct also, does mach 3 have some sort of safety mechanism so noobs like myself don't kill ourselves first time round?

2: I also cannot seem to find the jog controls anymore, one day they were there, the next they were gone, where did they jog off to? Did i inadvertently press a hotkey? Oh, and i've tried the control alt + J hotkey, nada.

3:When i cut a circle it goes all wonky and makes S's, do i need to reverse some wiring or something?

Thanks in advance,
