3rd axsx on lathe
« on: May 15, 2016, 12:33:46 PM »
Hello chaps--
I asked the question before but cant find the thread ( sorry )
I am using mach 3 on a small bench lathe and would like to set the tailstock
as the 3rd axis ( for drilling, centering and other odds and ends).

Please point me to the instructions for doing this.

I am using the standard simple screen that is the default-- and maybe now is the time
to upgrade - all suggestions and hints  gratefully recieved

regards

fred

Randomly looked through your posts and happened to find it rather quickly.

I don't keep any records at all, but do  file some  text for on things that may be of value on a particular
subject matter.
