The way it works now (OK, should work...) you will utilize your whole available speed range in the above example. Do you want to restrict it?? Don't follow you.

You need a better spindle motor ;)

I will have to read that a few times more  later on when I get some time but from first read is that not exactly what it should do if you have a min and max spindle?

I wondered how long before you started bragging about your spindle motor.  ;D

But the point is i do not know how it should react.  :(

I never bragged, just simply pointed out that yours is a bit of a sub standard spare part  ;D

I'm  happy you found the culprit Scott.   :) Another red note placed in the writeup for future update. ;)
You just can't image how much checking went into getting the thread lead right.

A nice improvement for Turn would be on the Tool page. I use slow feed to move close to the stock or an electronic edgefinder, then switch with jog mode to a 0.001" resolution incremental jog and bump it to touch that way. There is no button on the Tool page so you can switch between continuous jog and incremental jog, so I have to keep switching back and forth between the two pages to set multiple tools. Just a thought.

Holding down the Ctrl key while using the jog buttons will switch you to incremental mode.
