Hi

Video Address:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8apTgMTvjI&playnext=1&videos=srC9h9H00Ps&feature=mfu_in_orderI have tooling holders by Tormach that I`m using in my DIY router. I have gone over

the details of tool offsets in the above video. At this time I do not have the Tomach dial indicator

mounted in a holder. As a substitute I used a long drill bit mounted in a holder.

I setup tool 1 i.e. a long drill bit as the datum tool. It was placed on 123 blocks.

I brought the spindle down to the top of the 123 block and set in Mach3 that point

as zero.

I then found the top of tool1 and got a measurement of 5.2766

Tool2= 5.2356

Tool3=4.3434

Tool4=2.2066

Tool5=4.1271

I then loaded my code into Mach3 and brought T1 down to the surface of the part.

I set xyz to 0.000

I manually moved the machine from the part to allow for a manual tool change.

I placed T2 in the spindle and ran the program.

Problem: Tool2 raised extremely high over the work surface triggering my Z limit.

I have no idea why the second tool raised so high when it was a bit shorter the T1

I have a clearance plane set for .2 above the surface. Still the tool seems to be moving

just too high.
