Hood,

Thanks, but I've got it covered at this point.  Just need to grind myself a round-nosed tool....

That will probably be harder than the coding ;D

Hood,

Yesterday, I made my round-nosed tool, and debugged my first real parameterized G-code!  Worked perfectly!  Thanks again for the tip!

Good to hear Ray, I use a button tool quite a bit, mainly for making rollers for masts and such like but have also done a few ball end handles similar to your part :)
Slot 5 in my Turret is kept for button tools, usually have a 5mm one in but have a few more sizes already set up in the tool table just to swap out and all that I need is to call a different offset :)
