General Mach Discussion / Re: help with tool length offsets
« on: March 26, 2009, 04:24:02 PM »
so when I use g31 with my auto z probe 1st, that registers as tool 0?
If i try using g31 for say setting tool 6 later, that z height will then become the datum?
That might be where problems are arising.

Hey fellas,
I'm setting up a tool changer on my mill and have a question about TLO's.
I know mach needs a datum tool set 1st to reference the other tools but
have read posts saying the datum tool is tool 0 while others say tool 1.
If it is tool 0, how can you enter the Z height in the tool table?
I'm running ver 3.039.
Thanks Bill
