I'm programming and running the machine mentioned above, and I'm having an issue with X-axis live tool tapping. The issue is when feeding into or out of the hole the machine seems to be feeding in inches per minute mode instead of inches per revolution. Here's a copy of the code the machine creates for itself. It's a 6-32 tap for those who are curious.

Your F1 is wrong. For IPM a 6-32 tap running at 443 rpm should have a feed of F13.843. If you use a G95 to switch it to feed per rev your feed should be F.0312
