When I try to post it again it says: sorry there is already an attachment the the same filename as the one you tried to upload.please rename the file and try agian. I tried renaming the file and that does not work either. Any thoughts.

Is that the correct xml? It loads the plasma screenset, are you using a plasma?

I'm not using a plasma I was reading down the list and it seemed like all the right settings. I did see one more XML file but it didn't have a very long list so put the other one up. I'll post it anyway too later tonight. I've have fiddled with every kind of setting I could think of on the flyout. I've studyed the problem a little closer and and here's what happens exactly: the X and Y work perfect.  When I push the z up it goes and won't stop. When it does stop I can't then tap it up I very small movements. Right when I push it down for the first time it won't stop. When it does stop I then can jog very small movements like normal taping  it down. As soon as I go up its the same thing all over again.

Open Mach and look lower right and you will see the name of the profile you are using. Close Mach and then go to the Mach3 folder on your drive and look for a file that has the same name as your profile and a .xml file extension and that will be the correct one.

Are you using the keyboard to jog or is it buttons on a machine panel?

I'm using the Mach screen with mouse. I have never tried the keyboard.
