How exactly was it programmed? What was the programmed path and how much was it comped? Was this like a 1" bore with a 1/2" tool? Or a 10" diameter circle with typical wear comp on it?

It was the example in post 160.
- Tool 9 set as zero diameter in the offset table (the Wear tool)
- Tool 10 set as 1.5915" which works out to a 5" circumference in the offset table (the Control tool)
- "Helical bore" of 3.183 diameter. That's a 10" circumference for easy math.
- Ten loops of the helix, plus one finish at the bottom = eleven loops X ten inches of circumference = 110 inches
- 110 inches at 10 IPM
*should take *11 minutes (plus advance and retract time)
- Everything else identical.
- On Haas: Wear took 5:41 minutes, Control took 11:12
- On Brother: both took "about 5.5 minutes". No difference.
- Resulting paths shown here (programs follow)
