I will admit I did a very quick build of the thread table- but the whole point is its a simple text file and I expect users to fill in the table with values they like.

I need some help on from the metric guys- I have most of the DROs set to a 2.3 format. I know 99 inches is Ok for US guys, but is 99 units OK in metric land? Before I go through all the DROs to make sure that negative numbers are allowed Id like to know this, so if I need to use a 3.3 format I can make the changes in one pass.

Does the leading 3 actually restrict things?
If it does then 3 would be a minimum I would say. My lathe has approx 400mm travel on the X and 1000 on the Z. I dont often use the full travel on the Z but have done and will do in the future.

Hi Ron,

Nice work, just a note from a metric user, i think 4/3 format would cover most lathes.

Thanks for the advice, I will edit the DROs to be sure I have the Signed bit checked and make them a 4.3 format, at least where it matters- i doubt anyone makes a cut depth of 1000 mm :)

I wont be able to work on this for a couple days, I have grandkids coming fro the long weekend and they keep me busy.

Keep the feedback coming, thats how we are going to make this wizard more useful

I have updated the demo on YouTube to the current screen. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YiuQ9dKVzBM

Hi Ron,

While in run mode, when toggling the "edit" button note pad ( or any other editor) does not come up.

However, it does rewind the program and start the program and the machine! This does not happen when

the wizard is not called.

Thanks,

Bill

Ron, just a thought for you, it might be an idea to do a video actually showing how you would use this in a real world situation. In other words, I'm not a very "experienced" lathe user, so the idea of watching a person using this on a machine while setting up and running a job, would be an enormous help to someone like me.

Just a thought  :)

Hope to get a chance to test it out tomorrow, been a bit busy the last few days. May even try and do a quick vid to keep Dave smiling, wonder if he will understand my accent :D

'at-a-boy!  :D

And yeah, I'll understand your accent just fine, after all, I'm told my ancestors are from your area around there somewhere in that country of yours (McGregor)  ;)

Thanks,
Dave
