OK. Then apparently I don't understand how it operates Grin

Hood,

How do you slave a spindle? In Mach or you just split the signal to the 2 drivers?

Hood,

There is a wizard that does just that. You touch off 3 points on a circumference of a circle (or 4 if you like) and it automatically calculates the centre. You probably knew it, but just in case Wink

And while on the topic I will add another method I use to centre a chuck on the mill's table. Hold a round bar in the mill, lower the head and chuck the other end of the bar in the chuck. Now it's perfectly centred, zero the DRO's and use clamp the chuck to the table. Fast and easy.

Hi Scott,

I don't see a functional difference between the two options you mentioned. Either way it addresses the two camps. Probably go with the easiest way to make. Two separate screens sounds easier to me...?

About the tool offset number, I only want the offset number to be shown, not the actual offset.

Scott,

I want the last 2 digits of the Txxyy word to be displayed as the offset number. The first 2 digits of is are already displayed as the tool number.

Sounds good Scott!

Hi Russ,

No. Was not meaning this. When you program a tool change in Turn, something like T0101, this will be tool #1 with offset #1 from the tool table. If you then program T0120, this will be the same tool #1, but with offset #20 from the tool table. Now it is desired to have a DRO both for the current tool number and the current offset number. That as well as the above mentioned LED to show if the offset is active. There is a DRO for the tool number but non for the tool offset.

How about adding just another Run screen that will be simplified. Calling them something like Run Pro and Run Standard? Should make everybody happy.

Scott,

The LED Tool Offset 'ON' is 28.

As for the Tool Offset DRO, I think there is no OEM DRO for that. At least I haven't found one. Got to be a trick to do that though.
