    It seems excellent so far.
    Couple of gripes are that tools in the tool table page are only identified by numbers, no way to put a descriptive name
    The transferring/copying etc of files takes a wee bit of getting used to compared to a windows PC based controller.
    Both are minor things really and the control itself works very well and is very responsive.

    Will it chase threads? If so easy to set the tool into an existing thread.

    Never tried and not sure if it can.
    It has G32, G76 and G93 so it may be a possibility but I have never looked into it.
    It cuts threads beautifully, have only done a few but this was one I did the last day, 1 1/2" UNF on some 316.

    Never had a problem whether on the manual or the CNC, I do however, nearly always, use carbide full profile threading inserts.

    Just looking at the manual and it might be possible to pick up threads with the SP word.
    It defaults to zero degrees so if you ran a G32 just proud of the thread and paused you could see where it was in relation to the thread, you could then alter the code to put in a degree offset and try again. Might take a few goes to get the angle correct but once satisfied it was fine you could then run the G32 at the correct depth.
