Dennis,

I use turn a lot and might be able to help.  What are you doing?  Are you running a wizard?  Which one?

Hi Dennis

Hears the Mach3R 2.01.000 lock-down exe, Z is working in it properly.

Thanks, Chip

Hello Arnie
Funny thing i was on the phone with Chip and we tried the turn wizzard just inputing random info and it worked, now it seams it's working maybe it was the vbersion i was using.
Are you using a cad/cam type program for your design if so which one?

Thanks Chip i have downlaoded the file 2.01.000 thanks again for all your help.

Dennis,

I am just using the wizards, they seem to work well for the simple stuff I do. 
I made a couple of other ones to suppliment them, one to do an o-ring groove on an ID, some to turn a taper up to a flat face, a modified OD groove (that doesn't pull all the way out between pecks), one to do a o-ring groove on a faced end, and a partially done elipse (I struggled a lot with that one).

Hey Chip
 I tried to install that version and for some reason it wouldn't go.
