I have never done it but would think its possible to slave X Y and Z to A, B and C.

When I had my plasma I had it driven on both sides of the long axis with two geckos, slaved through mach.  So I can do it with the one axis, just don't know if I can do it with the other axis at the same time as well.

certainly looks that way in the slaving setup as it has each of the X Y and Z with the A B or C slaving options. Dont see a reason why you cant but will find out for sure for you.

Well I certainly prefer mine to Mario but to be honest if it was a choice between Mario and yours Mario would win every time
 Seriously though, I think its a good idea to have a flag as your avatar as it lets others know where you come from, that can be handy especially when trying to recommend suppliers of hardware etc.

Apples,
 I asked Brian about slaving more than one set of Axis and he said he had never done it either but saw no reason it wouldnt work.
