Yes delete all that crap, that is the standard M6End for a mill profile. I think at some point you mus have either just used a mill profile and changed it to a lathe profile by changing the screenset file extension, or possibly you cloned a mill profile to make your lathe profile.

That fixed it , I must have borrowed the lathe profile for my A axis on my mill when I run it with A axis spindle and do some turning on the mill. ::)

 My bad ,it usually is me that screw's things up ,I just converted the lathe to CNC a little while ago and I am still getting use to it .
   I am finding that I should have done this years ago what a time saver ,I still have trouble getting use to how accurate it is ,this is the first hiccup I have really run into.

I am so use to sneaking up to a dimension I can not get over it ! I am trying to modify my post's now and get that finished to eliminate some steps there as I see some unnecessary moves in the G code files ,I am trying to do this in between job's but it is going well .

Thank's for the help Hood

Thats good, and yes a CNC lathe is very nice, especially if its a complex part or has a thread on it.
I still use my manual lathes quite a lot, probably more than the CNC ones. That however is because of the nature of the things I do as often I am repairing parts that would be hard to get set up on a CNC lathe or at least is just as quick to do on a manual lathe.
Any threading however, even if I have done most of the rest on the manual, gets shoved in the CNC as its just so quick and easy to thread with CNC.

I am looking for another to make shafting on with a larger swing and threw hole ,but everyone i have looked at so far is worn out . Do you use a G76 threading cycle with Mach 3 if you do could you send a little snip-it of code for an example.

Yes I use G76, the simple threading wizard will produce good G76 code for you if you want to take a look at that.

Here is a G76 for an internal thread
Code: [Select]
G1 Z6.0 X38.0
G76 X39.808 Z-18.0 I29.0 P1.5 H0.4 Q03 T0 C1.0
G0Z6

And an external

Code: [Select]
G1 Z6.0 X60.0
G76 X58.02 Z-18.0 I29.0 P1.5 H0.2 Q01 T0 C2.0
G0Z20
