I think your jogging at rapid speed, set in motor tuning, not at the feedrate speed?

Ok, wasn't aware there is a difference. The 9 inch move I used previously was programmed in the INPUT (G0 x9 for example) bar in the MDI window, as opposed to holding the jog button. Is this different than the moves executed in the g-code file loaded from Lcam?. My motors are tuned @ 10.5 IMP in the motor tuning section. I assumed that this would be the limit that mach # would be abel to run the motors? Thanks again for your replies, -Jeff

10.5 ipm should be the fastest it goes.
G0 moves are rapid moves and these are the moves that should be 10.5 ipm
You could try G1 X5 F1 this should take 5 mins
G1 moves are feedrate moves.

Thanks for the reply Steve. I am very new to this, and have yet to understand code well. G1 is the feedrate move, but what are x5 (distance moved in the x axis?) and f1?. If it is an x axis move, then wouldn't it only be 5 inches?

X5 will be X axis moving  5 units which in your case is 5 inches, or rather a command the that position, if you are already at X3 and command a X5 then it will only move 2 inches, that is unless you are in incremental mode (G91)
The F1 is a feedrate command, in your case 1inch per minute.

Hoods quite correct and I should have pointed out that you needed to be at X0 before starting
Have a search on the internet for G code tutorials, you'll find loads of free lessons to get your hand in.

Non of this really helps with your problem though, I suggest you get a watch and time your moves with that, counting the seconds is never that accurate.
