Mach 3 for Lathe
« on: February 18, 2011, 11:59:06 AM »
I have been using Mach 3 for my milling machine and now I want to use this program for my Lathe.   When I downloaded the Mach 3, my screen seems only set up for and has Wizards for Mill applications.

How do I get a lathe screen with Lathe Wizards?

Thanks for any help.

If you dont have the shortcut on the desktop that angel_tech has mentioned then browse to the Mach3 folder and double click the Mach3.exe, you will then be able to choose which profile you want to start.

My Old boss was Scotish.

After a wee dram or two, he would tell our company visitors (particularly from the US / europe) a great story about Haggis.

Haggis have their left side legs longer than their right side legs because they only ever run round the mountains clockwise.
Years and years of evolution have caused their legs to become longer one side than the other, exacerbating the desire to run round the mountain clockwise , making the legs longer on one side than the other, and so on.

Cracks me up watching him and the visitors as he tells the story so convincingly.
