Hi Again,

I was just playing a bit more with the rectangle wizard and discovered I misstated the situation. And if anyone sees this differently, please correct me. My experience base is modest at best.

In the first case, the settings for this is a 1/8" clockwise cutter with a feed rate of 7.5, and a 1" square with the lower left corner at 0,0, and Climb mill on the Inside.

This causes the cutter move Clockwise inside the square. With a clockwise cutter, isn't climb mill supposed to move the cutter in a counter-clockwise direction??? The feed rate is not posted, so in my case the default of 6 in/min takes place.

The second case is same as the first except that Conventional milling is selected, so Inside is still in effect.

This second case causes the cutter to move Counter-Clockwise outside the 1" square producing 1.25" cutout. Again, no feedrate is posted in the code.

Since I posted the previous message that was less than accurate, I wanted to cleanup my mistakes. I thought the feedrate was posted in the code with this and other wizards, but I may be mistaken about that too.

I use several of the wizards on occasion, and am quite impressed with what they do. So I thank you Brian and all others who contribute to creating and maintaining them. I do apprecaite the energy.
