1st Lathe program setup issues

I'm slightly modify the tutorial file to program and run my first part on the new lathe. It's a tool room TL-1 with tool post in the front, as opposed to a turret in the back.

Problem is I can't figure out how to setup the job properly. The stock front & back are switched for some reason and I can't get them to match my WCS setup.

Thanks. I was thrown off by the Z- towards chuck origin at stock front and the Sync View tips in the tutorial. Everytime I'd flip Z axis, wcs would move to stock back. I'd switch to design, rotate model, then try again, play with sync views, then undo it all, repeat 10 times. New lathe jitters I guess. Thanks again Seth!
