I recently watched a couple of chrisjh's lathe videos and saw his use of CSS and it seemed to work pretty well.  I did some searches on the subject and it looks like the CSS fault is that it doesn't work right in G95 mode?

If that assumption is correct, would it work OK in G94 if I compute & program the feed rate properly?  I'm mainly interested in using it for parting ops.

CSS will work in G94 but chipload will vary greatly and thus, in my mind, there is not much point in using it.
