I was looking for something like the previous one showed with an xml extension.  When I open that one I see pin setting, that must be it. Thanks.

I know it can be done, I think I was told to save an transfer an XML? Is this correct? When I look at the folder called XML, there are a bunch of XML's in there. Do I copy the entire folder? Or better yet, can someone give me or point me toward a play by play of transferring to another computer? Thanks, Mike

I've got a sherline type 3 axis milling machine that I added the cnc controls too and it works well. I'm wanting to add the 4th axis rotary table but I'm not sure of a couple things. Do the stepper motors have to be the same as what's on X Y and Z right now? I see a few of these things on evil-bay and I'm wondering if M3 can drive them if the stepper motors are different from what I have. I know I'll need a 4 axis control board too. Any input? Thanks, Mike

Definately good info. I'm looking for specific numbers though.

OK, I finally purchased a cutter grinder. I think the instructions were translated from japaneese to chineese to english. What I'm trying to figure out are the actual angles of a single lip cutter. I primarily use 30deg cutters with .005 tips. What I'd like to know specifically is the angle of the tip itself and the clearance or back angle of the cutter. Any info is certainly appreciated! Thanks, Mike

It's 79 bucks and I'm wandering if it's any good or worth it? Thanks, Mike

My plan is to do the Flag raising with the text "Uncommon Valor Was A Common Virtue" in an arc around the image, the text is no problem as I have 2l's wonderful text engraving program. The other side of the receiver will have the Eagle Globe and Anchor USMC image with his ame on top of the image and "Semper Fideis" below it. It's not like I've never done any engraving before, I know how to place things and to avoid damaging cutters. I think a single line type image will work better and just because I'm cutting bluing does not mean that if something goes wrong I'm screwed. The way I learned from master gunsmiths is the worst you can do is to F it all up, then all you have to do is to fix it, then to learn from it and to not do it again. Worst I'll have to do is to reblue the receiver ( I do traditional hot caustic bluing) which I'm considering doing anyway after engraving it, I think it would look great. As always, the help I get from this forum is absolutely the best, bar none and I sincerely appreciate the outpouring of both images, code and just plain advice. The shotgun is a JC Higgins model 20, 12 ga., the right side, ejection port side has a 2 inch tall by 3 inch long flat and the opposite side has a 2 inch tall by 5 3/4  inch flat. Excellent surfaces. These SG's are excellent hosts for turkey shoot guns and the idea is to give him a shooter he can compete with that's been personalized to him and to show the VFW's appreciation to both him and his service.
