    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.

    you never said how much X wear offset you were making when...

    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.

    send me some code and i can try it...

    you calibrated the master for a diameter with a pin, but you didn't appear to calibrate the length. There's a complete probe calibration option in VPS that needs a calibrated tool with known gage...
