I just turned on backlash for the first time and I noticed that each time direction is changed, the feed rate is slowed to almost zero and then sped up again to the set feed rate.

Is this standard behavior?  If so, it really slows a job down?

Any ideas?

Look at the top center of general config. Set your shuttle accel to .05 to .1 and set your backlash speed to about 200%. You may have to play with these two to get it to act as you wish.

;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D

Hi Brett,

I just changed the shuttle setting to .1 and the backlash speed to 200% and the speed appears to be constant.. ie it worked :)

Can you tell me what I just did?

Thanks alot
