I understand the programming error now thanks to dxw00d...
In machining referring to a measurement as "040" (oh-four-oh) is understood to mean 40/1000 or forty thousandths.

Sorry if this seems too simple, but why do I get different results when passing '040' and '40' as an argument?
I'm programming a lathe and arguments are in 1/1000th inches, so '040' is much easier to read.
Thanks,
