Have a look at your program and make sure there is a G20 (Imperial in the first line). Someone once gave me a program for model loco cranks and I had the same problem (cutting small). I put a G20 in the first line of his program and it cut the correct size. So if there is no G20 in the program put on in and see if that cures the problem. Just a thought! Jim

John....I multiplied by 25.4 and it seems to be pretty close...good enough.  Thanks so much.
Now just work out a few minor issues and I should be all set.  Thanks so much.

Thanks Al and Jim for your inputs also.
