Why not just linking the topic or at least the file?

I did link the file. The link does not say more than I said here.

In fact, to clean up the material I needed come in from the end until it cleaned up. This would mean running the engrave job and shifting machine zero each time. I ended up doing the facing by hand written Gcode typed into a serial comms program.

This does seem to be feature which is lacking in FreeCAD.

You didn't link it, you uploaded it twice.
