    G74 is face grooving or peck drilling. I don't believe you need both G74 lines for just drilling. You might look at G83. G83 is deep hole drilling with full retract.

    My guess is he don't know the difference. I was under the impression G78 and G76 in function were damn near identical. Only difference was the call numbers. The G78 program he used doesn't look like...

    Gloves on the table saw was sketchy. I don't know, to me it didn't look tapered on the end like a tap typically is. Hard to tell really.
