When you get halcompile working, I'd be more then happy to help you with your component. I've done several lathe turrets and a couple tool changers. Single direction lathe turrets are easy There is an older book called " C Through design " , it is a very good easy to follow text. Check it out.

You don't need a custom component for the Wieler lathe.
I know this because I have helped make a Weiler lathe work using only the built-in "carousel" HAL component.

linuxcnc.org/docs/devel/html/man/man9/carousel.9.html

(You do need the newer version from the development branch, that has added parity pins specifically added for the Weiler)

Odd, the link works for me.
But I have attached the file.
sudo halcpmpile --install carousel.comp
Should install the new version on your system.

(But you will need to figure out your halcompile problems first)

Tx Andy Link is working now. Halcompile is still not.

must the .comp file be compiled from a specific folder ?

No, halcompile can be run from anywhere. But the comp file must be in the path from where the command is run.

a, b = f.split("\n;;\n", 1)
ValueError: need more than 1 value to unpack

Seems to show that Halcompile is running, but is not able to split the .comp file into two parts at the ";;" token.

Is it possible that something in your toolchain is inserting DOS or Mac style line endings? it is looking for the character sequence "\n;;\n" which is 0A 3B 3B 0A and (for some reason) is not finding it.
docs.python.org/3/library/stdtypes.html#str.split

It could, possibly, be a localisation issue. Perhaps your system is using . as an item separator and , as a decimal separator? Though this would probably give a different error.

Thanks Andy for your great "carousel" script.

Only managed to compile some files so far.

HAL component generator examples working =
atanxy.comp - ddt - arraydemo - rand
also
oracchanger.comp from ArcEye
triacchanger.comp from ArcEye

HAL component generator examples NOT working with the usuall errors
out8.comp constant.comp
many others of various sources.

I took working files as an examples - copied and pasted all sort of lines to the ones not working.
rewrote portions etc.. on 3 different machines of mine

still have no clue what's going on

Found the problem.

Visited a fellow South African CNC club member , Henk Du Preez.
He compiled carousel.comp from my USB stick - > did not compile
Downloaded file from the net, straight on his machine -> everything went OKI DOKI

Long story short -> I previously installed Google within Iceweasel search engine, because Google is familiar to me.

When I used the Iceweasel search bar instead and downloaded carousel.comp -> compiled ==> :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)
