    your geometry is a little strange. Did you program this by hand?

    the arc moves only give you ~.7" of distance in X (and .287 in Y) when uncompensated, meaning the arc disappears completely with...

    do you have a Y axis?

    I don't know if you can code this in G112, esp w/ a radial LT and flat end mill. the resulting cut would be scalloped.

    like a global coordinate shift?

    if that's the case, I think G50 is what you're looking for. look at the bottom of the offset page.

    those cables are usually build null-modem rather than full handshake, IIRC.

    Any USB to serial adapter should work, but you'll probably end up with a DB9 connector on said adapter. DB9 to DB25...

    on a lathe, the X is just Y offset by 90 degrees, right? also, most lathes have a XY-XC interpolation mode which should do something similar.

    edit: ST30? you're looking for G112

    Unlikely that significant amounts of coolant is getting into the spindle as long as you have a tool mounted in it and aren't blasting straight at the taper all day.
