Ok here is the Brain, you will need to change the wear offset DROs on the lathe screenset to OEM 1234 and 1235.

Thanks Hood, why would the wear offsets be backwards, + is moving away from the the parts and - towards.
Check this one out: simple move, g95 run spindle or not (go figure that one out) g01 z2. f.015"/rev machine moves and shows .015"/rev in feed window, press + one time to increase feed but it doesn't, then after about 5 seconds the screen shows 5.015 but the feed rate doesn't change.
I see the default feed rate is 6."/min and .6"/rev. if I have .01"/rev in my feed rate window and with no moves commanded I can increase and decrease but click would go up or down by 5, 5.01, 10.01. 15.01"/rev
Hard to explain but some weird stuff going on.

I suppose you would have to ask Art  or whoever advised him it should be that way. Suppose it depends what way you think about it, if thinking of wear on the tip itself then it would be logical to say it is minus X amount rather than plus X amount.

Feed Override works fine on both my lathes. What version are you using? If you attach your xml I will look at it.

Hey Hood, I haven't tried a brain before so I pasted into C:/mach/brains and ticked the box in brains editor, hope that's right but it didn't make any difference + offset went - direction.

You also need to alter the DROs like I mentioned. Have just done it for you. One thing to note is the wear offsetDROs will not display the present set but rather the last entered so be aware of that.

Ok what version of Mach are you using?

Ok try an older version, I have found a few problems with 066 and Turn, different things from what you are talking about but they may also be due to the version and your plugin. I have informed Brian but I wont be holding my breath for a fix, if it had been in the Mill side then it likely would have been fixed right away ;)
 One of the things I have found is wear offsets get doubled for X if you are in Dia mode, another is sometimes DROs wont accept entry from keyboards.
Here is a link to 057, a version which seems to work well for me, you will have to copy\paste the link as the forum puts a  http:// in front of the link automatically, so just copy the text  and paste into your browser address bar then delete the http:// and then it should work, may take a few mins to start as the ftp site needs to sign you in.

Thanks Hood, I thought I was loosing my mind, had some funky thinks happening and you are right, I couldn't type in an offset, I thought it was my keyboard, still do. One minute am am using the keyboard arrows to jog ( don't ask about the RU Shuttle MPG from Russia) then the the keyboard arrows don't work, checked the hot keys, they seem OK, then I have to walk away, this thing sucked me in about a year ago on the mill and now it's doing it again, aaah

I am not saying that all your problems are because of 066 version of Mach but I did see some weird things in it with Turn, Used it plenty with Mill and its fine but not Turn.
