can't we rewrite that part of MACH so that G43 controls the knee instead of Z?  Thanks for clearing things up?

BR549,
I was using your code for tool setup and all was fine. Setup table. Ran some code with tool changes and everything was fine.
I then went to setup some additional tools and after 1st touch off of tool it drove tool through table. Any ideas?

Are you sure it was MY code? I have not played with tool offset/setting code for years that I can remember.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

I guess IF I read UP the list I would have seen it(;-)

Sounds like Mach3 failed to stop on the probe trip as a best guess.

Yup that's what I was thinking, but it appears to be something to do with the 2002 variable where it lift the tool .2 above the first touch. Instead of lifting it goes down further. It stops at the first touch.
