    Default Okuma l400 lathe

    How do I use the constant subtract offset for the x axis ? I am taking .01 passes on a pulley die, and would like to use some of the auto features on this lathe. (fyi - I'm new to the okumas) If I can't do it w/the offset page, how would I loop the program ?

    On the offset page: Add -.01
    To loop a program, there are a couple of ways. But the easiest is to make a sub program.
    On the Okuma, the sub program needs to be at the end of the main program after the M02/M30 code.

    Call your sub O (the letter O) followed by 4 letters
    OLOOP for example.

    Put the sub call in the main program where you want it.
    To loop a sub: Call OLOOP Q10 (to loop 10 times)
    At the end of the sub put an RTS

    Main program
    Sub call
    M02
    Sub
    RTS
