Very nice ! Hope you don't get into trouble on my account.

Hmmm. I don't see where that could swing 300 deg. though.
What degree pos. is it at in the pic ?

I think yall will find SOME of those options are broken.
Darn that list of things broken is getting longer and longer(;-)

You need to test every option you try, twice (;-) TP

Uh oh ..... wasn't aware of that.
There I go "assumin'" again.
Must proceed w/caution.
Will be interesting to see what actually works out here.

Always the way, anyways I will have a go at it and let you know the outcome in a few weeks once installed.
Thanks for the help so far, Jason.

edit: it is the rotate I am worried about more than the tilt. Tilt will only ever go 90 degrees downwards.

Sorry if I interfere,

maybe I am wrong, but I can't see a problem here.

I would do it like this. ( lets say we take the A axis )

calculate the steps per so that you get 1  Rotation of your spur Axis by 360 degrees.
UNCHECK "A axis is angular"  in Gen. Config UNCHECK rotational options.

Now a code like G0 ( or G1 ) A180 should turn your axis 180 degree in one direction
G0 A0 back to old position.

Now IF there is a problem with the rotational axis ( A , B , C ) ( no Probs here )

THEN you can use the  X or Y or Z axis for that, IF you have any as a spare.
Same setup ( steps per unit etc. like A,B,C )

just a thought
