The problem is
HAL: ERROR: insufficient memory for pin 'gladevcp.chamfer.sf-f'

It looks like you have run out of HAL memory. Which version of LinuxCNC are you using?

(This is rather annoying as the HAL pins created by the lathe macros are not actually used... They only exist to supply values to the mdi_action buttons. )

OK, try 2.9, the HAL memory size is a lot larger in 2.9+ (256 * 4096 rather than 85 * 4096)

HI
I freed up some hal memory by omitting one of the hal files that contains the sub spindle config and the macros loads

Will probably upgrade to 2.9 once it is released.

thanks for pointing out the problem

Which GUI are you using? Generally they need an EMBED_TAB command in the INI file of the config and all the files in the config need to be in the config folder.

There is an example for Gmoccapy here:
github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc/blob/master...lathe_macros.ini#L37

I use Axis GUI. I tried add that line 37 and files, but no cycles tab.

If you start LinuxCNC from the command-line (command "linuxcnc") then you might be given a clue what is going wrong.

That command opened configuration selector where i can see my current lathe configuration and also lathe_macros. If I select lathe_macros,

Terminal shows:
"can't load tool table"
"cannot find file for: core_sim_lathe.hal"

Debug file shows:
Stopping realtime threads
Unloading hal components

That probably means that you need to add the path of the INI to the subroutine path.

In the INI file find SUBROUTINE_PATH and add
:.
to the end. The path is a list of colon-delimited entries, and . means "current directory" so :. means "and also this directory"

(It also says that you have no tool table in that config, but that's a separate issue)
