Okay, it's not lit in a normal condition I have the probe connected have been trying to use the script supplied by K2 but it does not work for me it wants everyting zeroed to the table not the stock, I have tried several way but each time you MUST do math to figure the location of Z hardly worth using for my application this sounds simple straight forward I will try it tonight.  Thanks,

I have read through it found the last script but I really do not understand it all.  It calls for a plate rather thana  switch and the K2 is a micro switch mounted in a houseing.  I am not sure if that will work or not.   It is set active low so I think it's looking for a connection or is N/O rather than closed.

General Mach Discussion / auto zero tool
« on: February 07, 2010, 11:33:30 AM »
I have been working for a few days not trying to get the K2CNC Z tool height control working.  They sent a macro that will allow me to zero the tool to the table manually then use the tool to set the offset.  I guess that is good but not for me since I always work from the top of my stock as probably most router users do.  I have looked all over here for a macro that would be simple I know the height of the tool it's 1.790 I do not understand the macros so I am not able to sort what macro here will work for me .  All it needs to Do is hit the plate and move up then it would be known that the height is what ever the move up was as well as 1.790 and feed that to the dro. 

Anyone know what macro here might do what I am looking for?  It would save me a lot of time during tool changes to find zero from my stock on the fly.

You are so right Hood, It does require though you know a little about Mach that is why this forum is so great.  Wide range of users form new to very experienced so a lot of help here to get the Machine running the way you like.

It took me awhile to find screen4 but no more blinky light.  Thank you Hood, that thing was about to drive me nuts.  I am all set now.  Everything seems to be running like it should now.  I have cut at least 12 jobs without a hitch. Only thing was that stupid blinking light and it's gone now.

Every time I load Mach that thing flashes yellow I reset it it's okay until I reference all home then back to flashing yellow I reset it this is a vicious circle.  Getting tired of playing the game with that button.  Is there a way to reset that FOREVER?

KentCNC Is there an alternate way to get hold of this guy?  I have been trying by email the one he posted but no reply?  Wondering if it is a valid email address today?
