Willem,
  I understand the testing with the small values. I use the GROOVE tool instead of the BUTTON. (Even harder to see and my eyes are bad, LOL)
I cannot get mine to display the TRIANGLE with the BUTTON setting like you and Rich are getting...no matter what I try.
Are your Balusters pieces that you actually cut ?
Thanks,
RC

Hi RC

Actual cutting is not yet possible for me (retrofitting my lathe).
But of course i follow the development of Lazyturn so i can use it when i am ready.
Most of the shapes i see until now are not to be cut with one tool (see for example the shape in #497 (on the right will be a space that Will not cut with the diamant)) that is why i request to use more toolshapes in one project.
A tool with a widht of 0.5 mm Is not for the real world to use ( or you have to make very small parts)
I understand that it will not be easy but never ask is never done.

Greetings:
Willem

Thank you Willem.
   I hope you get your lathe ready soon. Looks like we will soon be actually cutting the profile !
I see too that many parts will need multiple tools.
First things first.....keep up the good work.

Rich,
  I sort of figured you, like me, were on the "Mature" side, judging by your vast wealth of knowledge, but I didn't realize that you were one of the PILGRIMS !  :D
RC  ;D

OK...seriously though.
Could some of the differences we are experiencing be attributed to running XP with Service Pack 2 as opposed to 3 ?
Just curious. I do not recall seeing any mention of it earlier.
Mine is XP SP3.
Thanks,
RC

Hi Chip
Downloaded the file thanks. I first tried to use LT and do it myself gotta learn right well it turned the profile, first before i go on let me say thanks Art for all your work on this project, now back to what i was saying the file cut but it left 4.20 MM on the profile the finished Dia is 10 MM is there a way to select how much i wish to leave on the stock?
