Now here is a question. Is it worth the time of hooking up an automatic tool setter ?

Well it still took me near 3 hours and had 4 programs

I was able to do 4 outer holes ( drill path then 3/4" cutter drill path ) on each outer dour holes. I used a block in between with a hole to pin off a locator hole . The came back after wards and drilled and counter bored the last hole .

lessons learned on this job. Order form in place . Then the guy had the nerve to come pick them up with no money  another new fuel in place no payment no chips made

I used pins and an edge finder. I also have a coaxial indicator that helps as well

No I had to slide them 3 times on the mill. Those are 60" long using 2 vises in my IH cnc. Once I start multiple parts I will play around and make sure the g43 is working.  I had some issues with my limit switches coming on which messed up a couple of holes but they are still functioning fine for what they are for. I just turned the limits off till I finished the job. Then read up on it and changed a setting in the general area and it seems fine now .  Will update later once I use multiple offsets and the g43.  Thanks again

Got it all set up . I have not tried to use the g43 yet but I can use the tool number and it has made life a lot better . I had a job to do and it had 90+ holes per bar with multiple setups and 4 drills and 1 cutter and wow the time I saved . Thanks all.
