now off to research the myth? that a mach3 driven single pulse per spindle rev threading system may have its limitations and what they may be.

Ken,
It was found that multiple pulses provided no advantage over the single pulse. RPM measured and used for threading is
to three decimal places and and thus better than you can measure. I would worry more that the lathe system has required accuracy.
