Hi guy's
I thought i posted my machine info but i don't see it here also attached my XML file to the post what happemed to it.
Well one more thing i found is i can't get the motor tuning to save the step pulse and dir pulse when i set a number there and say save setting's the program closes and i give it a try then go back into the program motor tuning the numbers change by them selves the motor's won't work correctly with a setting of zero they stall and lose there place as they try to move any ideas always appreciated.

Hi, Dennis

Hears the .lset I'm working on (copy it to C:\mach3\)  and 4 Jpg's that need to be copied into your C:\Mach3\bitmap\millBitmaps\ for Lathe buttons.

Run Mach3Turn, View, select, new 1024 chip lathe B.lset

I've figured out what the problem is with your lathe, Call me in the morning.

Thanks, Chip

PS: I had to Zip them to post no .lset allowed, put them in a temp folder to un-zip.
