Sounds like you're going down the right path. I have a few books scanned PDF that I can send you that have excellent examples of Mill or Lathe G-Code routines.

I can see your stepper motors but not your controller type. Did your controller come with a book? It may have some great examples right in the programming section. Remember to test your code slow before you rip into it.

Let me know if you get stuck or you need help.
