Very fast Skim Cut on a lathe

Post by suntravel »

Since I am a lazy old fart, I made a button for the VCP to do a Skim Cut for setting Part X easy peasy from current position...

When done it returns to the start in Z and the final diameter of the Skim Cut in X

It is using Aux5 button and mfunc57 macro.
