Ok sorry, what is XML?  I will as soon a I know what it is.

Yes, as a forth axis it works well for gear cutting, dividing etc.  Where the problem comes in to play is where I wanted to try it to do some lathe work.
But as I soon found out, you have to program almost every line of code with code to move the A-axis, and some heavy calculations.
I used my cordless drill on the divider to cut some shapes out, but now that I have the stepper connected, I would lust like to use it.

The xml is the file that has all of your settings. If you are using the standard Mach3Mill profile then it will be called Mach3Mill.xml, if you have a custom profile then it will be the name of your custom profile.xml. You will find it in C:\Mach3 folder on your drive, you will need to copy it to your desktop then rename it for the forum to accept it, suggest you call it JonnyElectronny.xml
