    Not sure I understand the dimensions and shape of the part you are referring to. Depending on how your code is written there are several ways to turn a taper (or eliminate a taper caused by wear). Would have to see what your code is to try to help. Can you read G&M code? Can you program G&M code?

    Ok, I hope that’s a typo. 1-1/2 to .125? By 6” long?
    You program the taper out. Make an X and Z move on the same line.

    Takes some trial and error and it might not be consistent across the entire length.
    You may end up with several lines of code, adjusting taper at different points along the length.

    The numbers are used for the example.
    X 1.0 Z0.0 (start of your line)
    X 1.0 Z-3.0 (taper line) adjust the x value in this line to correct taper.
