    Re: MichaelHenry's Tormach Move How-To

    Thanks, kstrauss.

  4. Inexpensive TTS ER20 Collet Chucks Still Available?

    Since I had the Acer monitor, I figured why not try to get it working with PathPilot (v1.9.3).

    When I type ADMIN TOUCHSCREEN in the MDI box and hit RETURN, there is no response whatsoever. It's...

  9. Changing Rotary Table Position in Tormach Machine Simulation

    I know this is probably trivially simple, but I can't figure it out for the life of me.

    SC8 Autodesk Inventor Add-in Broken?

    OK, I pulled the trigger and upgraded to SC8. On the whole, I'm pleased. Graphics are sharper, and simulations calculate faster.
