There isnt one and is one of the things that hopefully will be added in the new revision of MachTurn.

Should add of course that if you have a custom M6 Macro for your toolchanger you could have that writing to a User DRO and thus use it for the offsets. How you do that will depend on how your macro is written but with mine I have calls for each tool so its easy enough to do it.

Dont spend too long on it, I was talking through the hole in my **** :(
I was thinking I had done it on the lathe but when I looked again I saw I had tried to do it and couldn get it. It is one of the things I have asked Brian for when he gets working on turn so hopefullY soon :)
