You folks have got to be wondering 'what's this clowns problem'!
And you would be right, this couldn't be simpler, you gave me the solution in your replies.

Before going all nuts and assuming I had a lot of study to do on programing my ini I had another look at my PP, the error I was generating when loading my test file into LCNC originated there.
I fixed that, added "TOOL_CHANGE_POSITION = 1 1 0" to my ini, and it works just fine.

One last thing, how and/or where do I program the machine to go to G53 at the end of a file run?
I'm not finding any mention of that in the docs.

No, not by a long shot ! You have to do much better if you plan on looking as a clown! :)
I think i used Vetric once in my life several years ago, so i can not help much.
But i do read everything here, in this forum.

I use vectric software everyday. I use Aspire for my wood routers.

The post is quite easy, especially for linuxcnc. Version 9 has a linuxcnc post. earlier versions they used an EMC post which will work also. version 9.5 has both.

The manual for their post is pretty good.

at the bottom, Vectric allways sends you to G0 X0 Y0, you can replace that with what you want G53 Xx Yx Zx,

Although I would raise the Z first.

Thanks for the support folks.

I was just noticing something in my ngc files, I have FEED_RATE, CUT_RATE, and PLUNGE_RATE with the commands [F] [FC] and [FP] to match in my PP, I don't see the plunge rates next to my Z moves. The plunge rate seems to match the FEED speed, so do the CUT RATE speeds. Everything is set to the feed set under 'Feed Rate" in the tool settings.

Did I miss something?

I think I found the issue, but, (and this is odd), my Feed rate in the tool table is being doubled.
How can that happen?

I got it, I removed the [F] under RAPID MOVE and it shows nothing now.
And it travels at what I think is the machine rapid speed.

Thanks again.
