Another update.
I have just spent the morning chasing strange bugs in a program, only to find out that the bugs were in Mach. The Display Driver does NOT handle G52 X0 Y0 properly. To be honest, I think I found this out ages ago, with help from others including Terry.
Anyhow, I have documented this. See attached. Comments welcome as ever.

Cheers
Roger

Tweakie has corrected my misunderstanding of the G91.1 instruction. I have updated the PDF yet again. My thanks to Tweakie and Ger21 for help here.
I will say that i think the Mach3 manual is a shade obscure on this subject - or just plain wrong in one place.

Cheers

Another update, to Version 11.
Several small clarifications plus a full page on 'what to do when using your rotary axis as both a lathe and an RT'.
The doc folder will be updated soon I hope.

Cheers
