rich,
  your math worked out perfectly for me but sadly the x axis and z axis still moves when i try to home the machine.

You followed my reply #7 exactly?

 What version of Mach are you using?

Can you post XML file for the lathe your using.

sorry for the delay, i have the newest version of mach 3 its like version x.x? im not really sure but i just purchased the license for the program also. Im not too clear on what you mean by the xml of my lathe but i do have their website on it if that helps you at all. Also if the machine is not homed out will that cause the z axis to constantly stop about .100 thousands short on every pass of a turn cycle? It almost looks as if i was making a taper on the part. Here is that link http://www.mini-lathe.com/Mini_lathe/Reviews/Homier_7x12/Homier_7x12_p1.htm

Post your XML file.
It will be located in the directory where Mach was installed:
C:\MACH3
the file name is: Mach3Turn and the file extension in windows will be "XML Document". Make a copy and give it
name like MIKEYZ and post it and i will take a look at it.
