A couple of questions.

I downloaded and installed the file (NFSturn008.zip) at the beginning of this thread but when I open the NFS turn wizard it shows it as being "licensed NFS Turn V 0.6".

Do I have v 08 or 06?

Also I have been trying to understand the various wizards and doing so I keep having a problem with the NFS wizard doing unexpected things and the standard turn wizard doing what I expect when doing the same type of operation. For example, I can do a turning op in the standard wizard with no problem but when trying to do the same type of op in NFSTurn the lathe keeps hitting either the plus X limit switch or the -Z limit switch on initial move. I believe I am entering the same perimeters in the boxes but to be honest I could be a little confused on what I'm supposed to put in them... X End, X start, etc. I seem to be doing it right in the standard wizard but must be getting it wrong in NFSturn.

Is there any documentation or manual for NFSTurn? I found Ron's video on intro to NFSTurn but I am wondering if there is something out there that steps you through each operation and what each data box is for.

Sorry, I am very new at lathe work and maybe if I was more experienced the screens and how and what each entry means would be more self explanatory.

Thanks,

Gerry
