    Yeah, you will have to switch to Cartesian (G112) and G17 plane and program it as X and Y. See page 145 of the lathe manual for an example.

    For X and C only, I think it would be something like:

    (You put in the Z position.)
    C0.
    G01 X0.875
    X0.6668 C50.9558
    X0.875 C101.9116

    G0 X1.
    C180.

    Good job. If you do not want the part dropping off in the chip pan, program the cut off to stop at about X0.090 and then you usually can twist and break the part off by hand. I would also recommend...

    I could program a slot in MasterCam to use only 1 line. It all depends on how you want cutting to go and how much control you want over finished size.

    There are also processes to stress relieve material with vibratory stress relief and with shot peening. These seem to be only effective in materials with smaller cross sections.

    In this case, G50 X Z sets the machine coordinate zero shift relative to the turret position. Normally it is employed by returning the turret to home position (G0 G28 U0. W0.) the commanding the...

    I do not see why you are not programming like this or something similar:

    G28 U0. W0. (always sent the machine to a safe position BEFORE calling tool change)
    T0700 (call tool change)

    I totally get why someone would need to do this since setting tool length offsets is so difficult on Haas mills.

    What happens when you enter each line and execute line by line in MDI?

    For proper assistance, one would need to know all variables and subprograms in addition to this sub program.

    Use oversize stock on the thickness (1.5"?) and mill as needed then flip and mill off excess using toe clamps or special soft jaws extra long with the part profile milled into them.
