I've got it cutting my parts finally, but still see some issues. I'm pretty sure I can attribute them to me. ;)

When I setup my tools in Dolphin Turn, then set them up in Mach 3 Turn, it sets the offsets twice. That gives me double offsets. Mach doesn't travel to the expected offset. It just posts it in the dro after the initial tool change move. I delete the offsets in Mach and everything works correctly. It has to be something that I don't have my head wrapped around yet. I do, however, get my tool numbers showing up. Without the offsets in Mach though, the tool numbers are not important.

Any thoughts on that?
Thanks.

Not really sure what you are meaning unless you are asking actually setting offsets in Dolphin. Can you attach the cnc file and also your Mach tooltable.

It would not let me upload the files here. I did put them on my website too, but can't see them in a browser.
They aren't real big if you want me to email them.  One is 19 KB and the other is 7 KB.
Thanks.

I am not really seeing where your problem is, it seems fine here, then again I dont use the standard lathe screen so unsure what all that home world stuff is.

Can you attach the code you get.

Here it is.
Unchanged. I do have to dress it up some, to actually use it though.

Ok as said I dont use the standard screen so cant tell you what buttons you want to press but I would think the method should be the same. Well not the same as I do as I have accurate homing and have a home off value for my master tool.
Anyway what you need to do is make sure tool 1 is loaded and then move it to the dia and set the X DRO to the dia, then do the same for the Z, zero it when its at the end of the stock.

Do you mean my master tools offset on X should be set at like 9/16"? Zeroing the dro this way really throws everything out of whack for me. If I use tool offsets in M3T and in DT, they don't offset each other, but double in the DRO. To get to the tool then, it has to travel like 7.5". My X only has just over 5" of travel, so that ain't working.

I am using radius mode in both though.
I will try Diameter mode in both and see how that works out.
