Hi, Spnar

If you right click on your Mach3 "Icon" and change the Target line to as shown in the first pic, Don't forget the Apple & OK, You'll get this Menu at Mach start-up, To chose a Profile Name, 2'nd pic.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Danny

Hears the Lathe. lset file, Install it in C:Mach3 folder, It's a work in progress screen Lset.

You need also install the Zip file (JPG's) in C:\Mach3\Bitmaps\MillBitmaps folder.

Edit: New 1024 CHIP LATHE D1ACC.set some added items.

Have Fun, Chip

Hi, Spatch

I've seen it done a couple of time's, If it's on a common shaft alignment is critical, It it's on separate shaft's like a dual gantry type install it pretty much a homing issue of needing to home to a hard Stop. As far as I know most would not recommend it as a common practice.


Hi, Radioactive

If your not running Warp9 Smooth-Stepper Board, It's a USB device, When you start Mach3 select the Normal Printer Port Control, Then verify that SStepper Plugin is X'd out in Plugin's page.

PM message your phone # by clicking on my user name, I'll give you a call tonight at 9:00 FL time, If your in US or CA.
