    Setting Up Backlash Corrections for Computer Numerical Control using Mach3

    I am just starting to learn about Computer Numerical Control (CNC) including Mach3 to drive my RF-30 mill/drill. One of my first baby steps was to set up the backlash parameters. These are important because I am using the existing lead screws and not ball recirculating lead screws which have little if any backlash.
