Just an update.
Looks like it is Mach that is screwed on this rather than the SmoothStepper, asked a few people on the Yahoo group and Steve Blackmore said it works fine in the old version of Mach he uses with the PP but Simon Daykin has tested again using the PP with a newer version and it does the feed per rev funny things that we are seeing with the SmoothStepper.

Hood, thanks for the heads up.

I did try with no luck clicking the speed reduction dro while facing, made no difference.
