For those that haven't tried the Lathe MOP in CamBam yet, here's a part I made quite easily with the new function. It's just a part for a ball-handle, but would be a bit of a challenge to do manually and would need a fair amount of time to set up.

Martin,
It does look good. How the lathe mop works, does the crossfeed is an Z axis? If so, then I should be able to turn something small chucking in the router collect and hold the cutting too along what axis?

Never mind. Grin Grin After downloading your .cb file what I called the cross feed is an Y axis on my machine... I'm right?

Yup! You got it! Grin
EDIT: Well now I've actually read what you've written, what happens is that CamBam converts the X axis in the drawing to Z on the lathe (spindle axis) and also converts the Y axis in the drawing to X on the machine (cross slide axis).

Press F1 in CamBam and check the new Lathe documentation for a better explanation Cheesy
