I have to agree. It has been very interesting to follow this thread. The last threading by Rich seems very good. If this is the result then it should probably be possible to make close to professional or industrial quality threads  :)

I too have been following the ups and downs of this thread with great interest.

I guessed when it started that by the time it was resolved i would be up to speed using Mach3 Turn.

I cant wait for the conclusion so i can begin to understand it all.  ;D ;D ;D

So well done Rich & Art and all those that made it work.

John:

 Let us know how your testing goes, I know your test lathe has a low torque issue, and the resuilts of hard steel vs AL will be interesting and show me how well correction is maintaining its
accuracy. The number crunching seems to show we shoudlo be able to expect a good thread even if the spindle slows to less than 25% of the start speed. ( Though how much effect on
the pitch from pitch to pitch woudl be interesting to see.

Phil,
That was just for all to see what would be in the document. A few sections are done but it needs a lot of work.
A lot of material to go through. There are a few "hundred pages" of info that was been posted relative to threading over the last year or so. Many of the posts are not relative. Some of the info has to be tested. So more work than meets the eye. I hope to have a draft done by the end of next week to coincide with a new MACH version release.

Any section in particular that your interested in more so than others?
Anything that you would like to see in the manual?

RICH
