Offsets: how to get beyond G59

I would like to know how to set up additional offsets beyond G-59.

Thanks,

G59P7, G59P8, ........ up to ......... G59P253, G59P254

10.7.18 Select Work Offset Coordinate System - G54 to G59 & G59 P~
To select work offset #1, program G54, and similarly for the first six offsets. The systemnumber-
G-code pairs are: (1-G54), (2-G55), (3-G56), (4-G57), (5-G58), (6-G59)
To access any of the 254 work offsets (1 - 254) program G59 P~ where the P word gives
the required offset number. Thus G59 P5 is identical in effect to G58.

Umm, I'm a bit confused. I understand G-54 through G-59. To use any of the additional 254 offsets I would do exactly what?  I'm a novice so please be specific.

G54 is offset #1 which could also be expressed as G59P1.
The first 6 offsets are quick and easy to access by just using G52 G54 thru G59.
After that, you use G59P7 up to G59P254.

Oooops .... :)

Say you wanted a fixture to use offset #10.

MDI G59P10, then zero the machine over the 0,0 point of the fixture.

Does that help ?
