    Default MDI commanded Ttttt to move X axis, and Z MOVES too!!! Why?

    I am linking a video of the problem.
    Syntax changes to the command line do not make any difference. T080808 or T0808 etc...
    (FYI, I have the Z max limit set 1" from crashing into the tailstock)

    Sometimes it will move both axis, but not always.
    I am confused, to say the least.

    Can anyone shed some light on this?

    Thanks,
    Doug

    Is the offset call automatically bringing Z to the zero maybe? Have you tried removing or changing your Z offset and see if that makes a difference?

    I assume you mean removing the Z value in Tool Offset? (or do you mean face of the part, offset?)

    Yes, or changing it to see if the behaviour changes. In your vid the Z moves back, what would happen with no offset in Z, or change it by +1 or 2"..?

    Thanks!
