    Hi Ray,

    I actually tried to do it the way you suggested, but could make it work. I'll try again tomorrow.

    Hopefully not on the Jag you have posted pics of in the past


    Anyway, a couple weeks ago I posted a note on how I introduced a tiny error by setting the ucs a tiny bit off when drawing the part and sending it to cam. I blamed everything, setup, Hamier, tool height gauge. …you name it. Then I stopped for a minute decided to run a different simple part to check everything in the shop. It ran just fine, so that narrowed the tiny error to either cad or cam setup.
    When you don't spend a lot of time in these programs,its so easy to stumble on a step and cause a problem that will have you casing your tail for hours or even days.

    Nah, my recent stupidities are limited to our two BMWs. Though we did have a real ordeal last Weds. with the Jag when it died at dusk. 45 miles from nowhere. With no cell service. Thankfully, due to the kindness of strangers, we did eventually (after midnight) finally get a tow back to civilization. I can't feel too bad though - in 21 years/50K miles, that was the first time the Jag failed to get us back home. For a 55 year old car, that doesn't seem too bad to me. And it was a 10-minute repair, once we finally got a working replacement part (and the first replacement part did NOT work...).

    Regards,
    Ray L.

    Ray,

    I tried you mirroring suggestion this morning and it worked fine. Not sure what happened before, but I suspect that when I attempted to select a face to mirror on, I accidentally deselected the body.

    Any way, your method works great!

    Thanks again\
    Terry
