Are you talking about tool length and diameter offsets?

Not really sure what you are meaning but if its that you want to have a rack of tools and have them picked up  by the spindle as a form of toolchanger then you would write the positions in the M6 macro.

All, thanx but I'll try to explain better..  Once I home the machine (g28), I would like to be able push a button and have the machine move to a specified coordinate.  This way once I set up a jig, the machine will move to these axis coordinates everytime.  Where in MACH 3 would I go to do this and how would I set those parameters. Once again, thanx in advance.

OK, these will be your work coordinates then. G54, G55, G56, etc. I think you have 256 of them. Look in the default mill screen, offsets page.
