    Hi folks
    I originally came to this forum in 2011 and my project has been on the shelf until recently. Looks like I never got around to introducing at that time so doing so now .
    I have now (due to lockdown ) managed to advance the project a bit but as a total novice have struggled somewhat with the software so hoping some of you can help me along.
    My project is based upon my Deckel FP1 http://www.lathes.co.uk/deckel/page2.html Which is not really a good machine to "convert"
    I have planted an X Y table upon it which is driven by steppers and ballscrews rather than break into the machines own drives.
    I have it running on Mach 3 .

    It is the limitations of mach 3 which I seem to need some help with . Please go easy on me
