Afraid  MachTurn doesnt have much in the way of canned cycle support. I use CAM or if its simple stuff just use the wizards. Brian is suposed to be doing work on turn some time soon but when I dont know as Mill keeps him pretty well occupied, even when he does get a chance to do turn I am not sure if he wil be doing much in he way of canned cycles. If you are decent at VB you could write yourself a macro which would do what you want as that is all a canned cycle is.
