    drilling and thread M16 Bobcam and Mazatrol M-2

    My milling Machine is a MAZAK VQC 20/40B with Mazatrol cam M-2 controller year 1986.
    My program is Bobcad cam V23 with Predator postprocessor and I am very hapy with the program,it has worked well
    so far.
    However now I have a problem,
    I trayed to thread a hole 14.2 mm with M16 pitch 2.
    The MAZATROL CAM M-2 - METRIC Mill Post processor out puts through Predator Cnc editor the folowing Code.
    Result for the code is bad and sure is it should not have M33 function on line N34.

    N2 ( MAZATROL CAM M-2 - METRIC Mill )
    N3 ( T1 CENTER DRILL , DIAMETER = 6.35 , LENGTH = 127.)
    N4 ( T2 DRILL , DIAMETER = 14.2 , LENGTH = 127.)
    N5 ( T3 SPIRAL TAP , DIAMETER = 16. , LENGTH = 127.)

    N7 G91 G28 Z0.
    N8 G91 G28 X0. Y0.

    .......................................For shortening the program.

    N31 G54 G90 X0. Y0.
    N32 G43 Z3. H3
    N33 M08
    N34 M33 (Wrong G-code becouse its command for tool measure unit out on mazatrol M-2 )
    N35 G84 G98 X0. Y0. Z-36. R3. F2.
    N36 M32 (These I belive cancel M33.)

    Can any with knowledge on my type of machine aswell as Bobcad/cam V23 give some knowledge
    or even better tell how to make changes in the postprocessor (MAZATROL CAM M-2 - METRIC.Mill)
    so it will give apropiate cod for the work.

    Thank you in advance

    I did not ask how to edit post processor thats is easy,just to open it
    in notepad.Did you notice its was G codes in the thread,I was send that code
    with the porpouse some maybee you or somebody else know how to
    corigate the Postprocessor the way it will give proper G code for the functions
    I needed.Please notice M33 Tool measure out,I do not know thot the hell
    its doing there.If you know mazatrol M-2 and Predator,write me a working
    postprocessor.
