What your seeing in Mach3 Turn is true based on your posted tap file and there is big gap
differance between the rough and finish.

Now i can make the rough and finish passes that work, based on your dxf and you don't get what you show.

Can you post a pic of your rough and finish pass settings along with the tool info?

Kerry,
  You have LT in DIA. mode but I think the finish only comes out in RAD mode.
Switch to RAD mode and see what you get.
This is your file in Rad mode.

kerry,
In what program and what version of that program did you create the dxf?
By any chance was it exported out from a 3d file?

Switching to RAD mode in LT seems to have made it work. I've attached a screenshot from Turn showing the results. Will Turn have to be switched to radius mode to run these files correctly?

The DXF file was created in the AutoCAD 2009 in 2-D mode not 3-D. I saved the file as AutoCAD 2007.

An updated version of the LazyTurn Manual /  rev 6 inclusive of appendix ABC&D can found in the members docs.

Kerry,
You will find that in the manual i just posted i have said you should draw, export, import, and have Mach3 Turn set  for the same mode.
I had trouble duplicating what you and Russ did since it wouldn't change no matter what mode i put mach turn in.
I take it you saved it as a version 2007 dxf.
A few other programs identified it as  3d dwg, 2000 would not import it.......
I am thinking that 2009 puts some crap into the dxf and causes problems .......don't know for sure....just a guess
