Is WM going to modify the Accuset program to be able to keep returning to the same height without having to go into manual mode and back to pattern?

No need to modify, just use the reference mode. I think I answered your question.  ???
If you are refering the the Lathe- Mizer once we set the saw head we did not change it. Just shut the saw down from turning and back up. Once you have the 8 sides cut we dropped down a 16th and that is all that was needed to make it round.

Yea,  now that I think about it... with the stop provide that's bolted to the bed rail,  you can set it so it saws out the end of the post but leave the blade on the cut every time.. So you can just pull the head back (after the blade stops) without changing the height setting.

The only time I've used the reference mode was on accident.  I'll have to poke at it a bit and see what it does.  What's the common use for Reference?

If you're talking about when you poke the button on the upper left of the control panel a second time it displays a number like 12".?  Then if you hit the up swtch,  the sawhead will go up to 12".  (or if you're above 12" and hit the down switch, the head will go down to 12") 

The best use I've put it to was when I cut my last board I hit that button in the upper left twice and then the up switch and the head goes to 12".  Then I offload the last board and load the next log.  The head is about right to start the next log. 

The advantage being,  you don't have to hold the up (or down) switch until it gets to that place.  Just bump it and it goes there.  Meanwhile you can run the hydraulics,  pull the board retrurn up,  flip the switch on the debarker or one of a hundred other things with the hand that's now free.  (I usually poke the reference button AS the last cut is being made so I'm ready as soon as the blade breaks out to hit the up switch and the head will start to come up.)

You can program four refference heights under each of the 1,2,3,4 program buttons.  For some reason,  Mary likes to use the second botton that's set at 24".   I think so she can look down the log better and level it and so on.

Hmmmm, I've been looking for that button for a bit. I just couldn't find it.  :-[

I've always thought I'd have to change my AUTO UP to where I wanted to be.  In this mode I decided it would take too much time.

A quick double tap on the MANUAL MODE should work out nice.  A good portion of my time is sawing 18" + logs, which will save me about 20 seconds/log.  Good tip, I like it.  ;D Now I just have to get my axle straightened out. :(

Thanks Mary and Bibby  8)  Boy I'd love to saw with you two for a day.  My brain would be in sponge mode.

I was talking about that black/white button to the left of the display.

What I call the manual mode button is one of the four orange buttons below the display - the one on the far left.

I have an early version of Accuset and discovered by accident that if I want the head to go ALL the way up I select Auto Up, then right after I hit the up lever I hit the auto down button and now the head just keeps going ALL the way up.  Just the oppisite if I want to come all the way down. 

I dont think it was designed to do that but it works nice.  Just have to stop the head before it goes higher than I want.

I thought they were the same botton.  I was thinking of the Black/White too.  I guess you really don't notice which button you're hitting after a while.

Thanks again for the new tip.

I see Wood-Mizer has put up a new web page with pictures of the Lathe-Mizer and the products it can make.

We were there Monday after the Pig Roast when they were taking these pictures.  ;D
