is there way that mach can record every single move on a lathe. then once it is recorded you can use that as a program.
does any one know how to do this or can it be done

Never used it myself but the JCode plugin looks like what you are after, you will find a link to it here http://www.machsupport.com/plugins.php

I have no idea as I have never used it, I would imagine however it would record any axis you move.

Have a look at CopyCat as you can use an XBox360 but you use a web cam to record the moves as you go along.
There is a manual  on it in Members Docs. It is for a mill but you can manipulate the code back for lathe use.
