I had an issue where everything was coming out reversed on my A axis.  I reversed direction by going into Config --> Ports and Pins --> Motor Outputs and then checking Dir LowActive.

Use a Mach2 post processor in sheetcam to generate the g-code that goes into the Mach3 controller.

Reberto,

I would really like to hear about your experience with the lathe.  Please keep us posted.

Ok DALgie, tell me what you are impressed with?  I want a small tabletop system.  Every system has issues the question is which ones are worth buying and which are not.

MaxNC seems to have design issues that everyone complains about.

MicroKinetics is a proprietary system that only allows you to use their software.

Most of the Sherline companies do not have encoders on the spindle, although it can be added I am back to trying to figuring out how it gets integrated into the package. Most of the companies don't care or don't know how to get it done. Additionally I have heard they are have a lot of backlash out of the box.

I don't have the time or desire to buy a lathe and convert it myself, I did that with my mill. 

After that you are into a $5k system which is way beyond what I want or need.

The Syil lathe looks good and has an encoder.  I guess the one negative is that I would be one of the first people to own one. I would much more prefer something that I could find others have used so that when I run into issues there is someone else to ask.
