RT,
Just curious, what bugs are there?  They seem to work well for us.
I wonder, if they aren't going to update them, if Mach Motion would release the source code so we (end users) can tweak them to fit specific needs.

Some are useful and operate correctly but some not:

On some of the wizards changes are not saved and reread on loading even though you save.

I haven't documented all of them.  Just started writing some of my own.

Thanks RT.   We don't have access to this code do we?

I've not started using them yet, but noticed that the Threading lists the pitch as 1/TPI

TPI is fine if you're imperial, but I'm from a land of metric threads....

(I was hoping to have a play with them at some point)
