    why is your R value below the initial Z plane? that, and i'd make sure that the machine is in metric mode rather than inches.

    i seem to remember holding down the jog button down until it reaches a home position, indicated by a light on the control. i'll have to check my docs when i get in tonight.

    on the tool offset page, scroll to the right until you can see the wear offset. you can't just type in -.013, you have to sneak up on whatever value incrementally, generally by less than the...

    if the machine is making good 1" threads, it will also make good 1/2" threads; i made a 1" since that was the gauge i had handy.

    cool thanks. I'll test this when i get a chance.

    question: when you're setting up your threading tool, how much diameter wear offsetting do you make before the thread gages correctly?

    that doesn't sound right.

    the same software that runs the TL machines also runs on the big ones, and the big ones seem to be making good threads all day.
