Thanks,

Yes, it is, Wes. A Txxyy will call it. By default Mach3Turn executes the M6Start macro upon encountering a Txxyy command.

I did some testing and the 253 offsets do work and are called up correctly, so you could program like I thought earlier. Interesting that the system is that robust. Gives you Lots of tools, just an odder way to call them up.

Did notice that the "Direction" DRO does not work correctly in machturn screen but it does update the tool sheet, just does not show correctly.

How do you call tools greater than tool 99 or offset 99?

I can confirm it does work, but I'm not sure how to call it from G-Code. Inputting 253 into the tool number DRO applies the offsets though.

Not much use if you cant call from code and as far as I know the format in turn for calling a tool is TXXYY so max 99 tool number max 99 offset number For example call T01222 for tool 1 offset 222 and what you will actually get is tool 12 offset 22.

Hood, Your right it can not be done from calling it up in the program. Too bad!

I did it with MDI and also typing in the tool number in the tool dro input box.

They could change it back, LOL    lot more offsets to use then.
