so ,when you open my file my planes for turning operations are wrong ?

These are two different things going on. Turing should do the correct thing and C axis drilling allows for the the live tooling to work if you want to keep the part stationary without spinning the spindle. Should be able to just call a standard lathe drilling cycle and go from there. I was only showing you different way to approach the process sorry I was not clear when i originally posted it.
