Look in tool path config set it to be y/a or x/a depending on your setup.

With the posted code set it up to use X with A in tool path config.

Below is Dan's code with lines added (separated by space) to cut the other end of the tube.
It doesn't work properly cutting from 0,0 rather than the 5" offset.
Can someone please point out the error in my code?
I've tried absolute vs incremental mode.... and nothing seems to work.
