It the lathe screen was written by a non lathe user i forget the guys name, best keep it secret. ;D

I have changed it on my lathe screen but i haven't uploaded it yet. :-[

I use buttons like Hood but i have now changed them all to match the mill which i use as well.

There are lots of screens to choose from, mine is in the screens in progress

Derek,

Dumb, naa. If you think about it why not stop the spindle for a 'feed hold' on a lathe. You are stopping the cut - stop the spindle - safety.  I believe that Mach3 is probably one of the best thought-out operating systems available - for the rediculously low price for the license. These encounters are all too easy to change for one to complain about dumb...

It would, however, make sense to withdraw the tool on a feedhold or stop. Carbide would appreciate that.

Bill very difficult on the lathe you can be in a bore, cutting a LH shoulder, there are just to many ways the the tool orientates.

But the tip is in less danger than a mill of rubbing while feed hold is in action.

So with practice it is feed hold then as the cut finishes then spindle stop. ;D

Apparently the lathe is easy to a mill. :o

Oh Yes... I see....makes sense - not cut and dried.

You lathe guys better be good at writing macros. I'm following this intently.....with a lathe ready for the 'treatment'.

As I said; I'm ready for MachLathe1.
