Hi Dennis:

 yeah, thats the trouble, our summers are so short they tend to be busy. Im watching them tear down my old garage as I type so they can build my new shop next week. Im
finally getting a shop built that will allow me room to experiment some more. Course then I have to fill it with tools, compressor, CNC stuff..etc.. :)
 Then theres the short scuba season.. motorcycle season.. and Im working on an intersting concept for an SCurve planner for the future as well. Too much to do, too little time.

  I am still thinking on LTurn to see how exactly to do the finish pass in the most logical way, the current verison seems pretty good at general roughing and finishroughing, it seems
to remove a good logical amount of material , with wood turning its probably good enough now for general use.. once I come up with a generic solution for a finish pass Ill finish that section up..

Thx

Divorce did it for me, very easy to start, costly to finish, well worth it in the end   ;)

just wanted to say that I finally got this entire process finished on a fresh w2000 box and it works great.  I think you have a great thing going here and I'm looking forward to the version with a finish pass feature.  For now I'll hand code it - it's a good exercise anyway.  Thanks for the good work.
On my laptop where I was practicing installation I have an option in the file menu for ENTIB, which strangely starts rhapsody for my blackberry.  Not sure where that comes from but I think it's funny.  Still says that lazycam is not installed, though sheetcam starts up just fine.
