I heed some help with finding the current tool edge. I working on a XYZ 0. I got it to find XYZ 0 but the setting is to the side (XY) of the tool not the center. Any help with the lua code would be great.

All my testing was done in the MDI window this M6 code work great... when I run it in the gcode it would not set the tool to the right height. (way off). What I found was the post Processor was adding a tool offset to the gcode on the next line in the gcode. I mod the post processor and remove it and then all was well. Big thanks for all your code.

Just another point I found in the code you may like to fine tune. when the Z move up to your set point Z0, my Z0 will trip my limit switch. Sounds dumb but it took my some time to find out why it would not run the tool change. reset it to -2 and all was good.  :D
I'am just glad that the code is starting to make some logic to me. [Little]

I have used your tool change code.. after a little set in inch's it works great. One thing I would like to do is have the code turn off the spindle and wait for 12 sec or have the VFD trip a spindle has stopped before it moves. The Post code from Vcarve has the start up of the spindle and is working good.

Big thanks to your help as I have used other code and it always is great. Please keep up your help, there is a lot of us that need it.

I need some help with setting up mach4 with edge finding routine. How do you use a edge finder and set all the variables that go with it. Lot of help with Mach3 but not a lot with Mach4.
Please can some one make a video or manual that can explain the basic. with all the setting you need to do before you click cycle start.   ???
