I read the first two posts and it basically just says "it works fine"

But later in the thread some one asks....

"When threading with the Quick Threads New wizard, the g code is generated with a G94 command. Seems like it should be G95. Am I an idiot or something?

"New wizard, the g code is generated with a G94 command and it is correct, we have tested for 2 years."

Just wondering how a threading wizard code is generated using G94 (mm/min) when all the ones I use are rev/mm.


Hi people - I was looking at purchasing this and then saw that the threading was using G94 (mm/min). I use the standard Mach3 *********.062 and as such it uses G95 (mm/rev).

How will this effect my threading Gcode  - (the stuff I already have)


Doesn't work. Still asks me to save tooltable on exit.

Also the tools have to be names... it will only pick up tools that have their names changed from the default "Empty"

why fixture save and tooltable save on shutting down? Why? When I change the tooltable I save it.... yet should the machine crash it loses the settings. I haver to close the app to get it top save properly..

Any ideas?

Stopped using program ages ago, for most instances it's too complicated for general use, I spent more time messing about with the tip radius setting than anything else (not actually using  the setting just trying to get numbers that worked in it for different threads). 

Seriously no one?

Mach3 - manual start of spindle whilst axis is moving?

When I try I hear a click but the spindle does not start - is there a setting?

For peck drilling on the lathe try the lathe macro you will find in the link below. There is a read file which
which you should read. Works great and i have used it manny times.



Hi Rich the link is broken - do you have a woking link?

Ah sorted it - it seems the forum url's have changed

It is now http://forum.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,15205.msg101682.html#msg101682


Worked fine on mine from the MDI in mach3turn.

Place the file in the correct macros folder, in my case c:\mach3\macros\mach3turn. Changed its name to M205.m1s  (m - one - s)

Then in mach3turn in the manual screen open the mdi txt drop down and type "M205"  (without the quiotes). you don't need the .m1s on the end.

The resulting tooltable.txt is saved in the c:\mach3 folder.

Tried it on XP and Win7 - both working fine.

Edit: Make sure you run Mach3 as administrator (right click -> run as....). Even better right click mach3 icon -> properties -> and somewhere on the tabs will be a run as administrator tickbox. Tick it.
