    Once we have got both axis to move the same amount i can do the math again and give you the imperial equiv, then we can change the system to old school as like swarfing said it could be a yank model. but we will get it for you then of course that will rule out the mechanical and software stuff as the source of your trouble, leaving only the electrics but they may be fine and just need proper BOB and stepper drivers should you be so inclined..

    Dont bother it can be worked out with the software al be it a little long winded..

    well that was easier than expected, managed to get a 1cm wide flat file between the frame work and as near as damn the X is 3 turns as is the Z, so all the screws are the same size

    confused but could be possible?

    7.26TPI 0.13774" 3.499mm pitch is about as close as you could get to that. Stick with tuning it out for now like Rick said before. Imperial or not you would still like it working with what you have. Sorry i took this away from that.
    If the nagging gets really bad......Get a bigger shed:naughty:

    Why not get Mach to do the work for you ? go into "Settings tab", just above the reset button "set steps per unit" start with X enter 100 measure how far it moved then tell it how far it moved and will set steps up for you.
    Do the same for all axis do a test cut if not correct go though it again.
