On my setup, Z+ is towards the tailstock and X+ is towards me.

When using the turn wizards, I just key in negative (-) values for Z, in the entry fields, when describing cuts towards the headstock.

Is it a mill or lathe you have? If it's a mill, don't use the turn wizards, if it's a lathe, you should be using Mach3 turn.

Hi Judah,

My setup is a P4, 2ghz, 1GB, Windows XP Pro SP2.

I'm currently running Mach3 ver RC2.0.013. When running Turn Wizards, I start Mach3 with "Mach3Turn.xml".

One more thing... I use my Numerical Ten Key Pad (right side of keyboard) for entering value signs (-), decimal point (.) and numbers... finishing with the "Enter" key on the bottom right corner. I don't know if there is any difference to the Wizard for which set of number keys are used?
