Rich,  I think I need to address the following as you suggested:

"- Looks like your rotary is just driven by timing belt so no gears etc and thus basklash should not be concern.

- Would suggest that you add an index so Mach can display the rpm of the rotary. "

Beginner question--what kind of "index" should I buy,  or is it something I should buy... is it a mechanical piece or instrument... since I get stuff off of ebay, what should I avoid... bob

Rich--I am at the phase of uninstalling ver. 066 and putting in ver .062 per your or others recommendations.  I don't remember having to put in a access code etc..  Is there a way to find my code on the current version, so that when I install ver .062  I wont have an access problem??  bob

Craig... so you are saying your solution is a kind of effective Band-Aid...and that I should take whatever corrections showup over time to keep "cleaning the system".  I understand that causal condition still exists even though we have a kind of "fix".  bob

Chaoticone--thanks for your support.. bob

Alright Rich, got it...bob

Rich, now that things are clearing up, I will go back to your list of what I should learn and process... bob
