# Newbie question of the day

All,
I have a newbie question of the day. Has to due with the number of axis a
machine has. Now I understand and am using 1 through 4 AKA X,Y,Z,A but I
see machines listed with 5 or 8 even and thought I saw one listed with 15.

Nothing past 4 axis in the books I have, and Google has not been helpful
(unless I wanted to buy one).

Anyone know a source on this?

I do have a feeling that some of it is marketing fluff from the
manufactures.
