That's COOL, Wes! Very good looking too and I think you succeeded with the "professional look". I know I will be interested in it. When do you think it will be finished? I have another lathe I am converting to Mach3 and I plan to use it for one off''s and was looking for something like this.

As far as a time line goes... I want this right before it goes out. I have many of the wizards created.  I have the layout 99% finalized but still creating graphics and finalizing scripts. Right now its running my 9x20 converted lathe with touchscreen quite well. I will post a couple more screens as well as create a new thread on this sometime this weekend. Might make a video as well showing just how easy it is to create a simple program using multiple tools.

that does look very nice, so, did you decide not to work on the stuff I sent you? If so, that is cool, just let me know so I know not to wait on you.  My thoughts was to make an integrated set with wizards as well, but, to release it for free to the community.  Pass a copy of yours my way when your done if that is do-able.

Scott,

Yeah it would be hard to keep up with 2 screen when one is so demanding on my time. Wife already wants to kill me. :) Yes I will have no issues sharing a copy with you as I have benefited for your work as well. :)

Here are a few more screens of my set. The cycle screen still isn't done with the graphics but the function is there. The IPS system has been consuming my time. There is allot going on in this screen set behind the scenes.

Having seen that "DaOnes" lathe screen set(s), are FAR superior to what I was doing ( all though mine where free), and I was unable to acquire any help with them. I am stopping development of them.
   From my point of view, DaOnes screens are the way to go, and also appears that the main ( at least forum comment contributing users ), lathe users all like his stuff greatly.

Scott, any chance of restarting your lathe screen efforts?   daOne has not been heard from in nearly two months and appears to have stopped work on his set.   I liked yours better anyways and was very disappointed to see it end.  I think yours fit hobbiest use better. I am just finishing retrofitting a 14x40 chicom lathe and would love to have your screenset.   Hope you consider it.

Hi,
Fyi, the MachStdMill 2.0 package that CVI offers includes a new lathe screen set as part of the free Personal Edition.

IHMO they are much better than the stock mach lathe screens.
More info and the software is available from www.CalypsoVentures.com

Guys, sorry it took this long to get back to you. I am sorry to say this project has ended for me for now. I have moved on to LinuxCNC as Mach3 proved to be way to dangerous for use with a industrial lathe. Scott please don't let me stop you from continuing your work.
