    ftl320 turret advancing multiple tools per "tool-change" button

    Hi guys, just got my lathe powered on for the first time.
    About to start putting tools in the changer, while cleaning out the cosmoline grease I hit the tool-change button on the interface. Instead of incrementing 1 tool, it rotated through 7 positions.
    Got me from T1 to T2, but it went T1 > T8 > T7 ... > T2. While its correct, it seems very slow and likely a problem that could cause a ton more wear and tear on the tool changer than needs to happen.

    I looked in the system menu, saw a few settings dealing with Turret, but nothing even closely intuitive or directly pertaining to my issue.
    Anyone else have this happen? If so, any recommendations on how to fix it?

    Replying to myself in case someone else hits this in the future:
    I emailed Kade, apparently my tool changer was spinning backwards because input power phase was incorrect.
    After reversing 2 wires in the input power wires my tool changer is back to normal and advances only 1 step in the correct direction.
