I was wondering if this code would work. Basically I have taken a fantastic code written on here and trying to make the rough turn increase in 1.5mm steps with a half second dwell until it reaches the z end distance,
#<peck> = 1.5
  o110 repeat[#<rough-passes>]
  #1 = [#1 - #<rough-cut>]
    o220 repeat[#<peck>]
    G01 Z#<peck> F#<rough-feed>
    G04 P500
    o330 if
    X[#1 + #<rough-cut> + 0.025]
    G0 Z#<z-start>
    o330 end if
    o220 endrepeat
    o440 if
   G0 = z#<z-start>
o440 endif
o110 endrepeat

Please let me know if this makes sense or if I have just destroyed an already good god. Someone suggested a G73 which does work but will not allow the tool to move away from the part on returning to z-start
