Yep...that's what I have. None of the compensation was ever made to work right.
Just have to code around the tool tip stuff.
I'm using the "Master Tool" method...T0101 is Master with a work offset of X0, Z0. All others are ofset from it.

Hood, Overloaded,

  You fellers have found one heck of a major bug, I tried putting in 0303 into the Tool dro also, and "Crash" and Poof disappeared mach..........

I put a "How to" in the FAQ section on, how to kill the Mach3 processes after a crash like that without having to reboot the computer (you know when mach disappears, and you cant kill the process in task manager.........

Any way, send this lathe Tool bug(s) to Brian.........

I still use 1.84, this was set as a lockdown issue, and have zero tool setting problems, you might try that version if you need peace of mind. Tool offset problems on a lathe are scarey at best.
