Thanks for the DRO info Mike, appreciated.

Not sure if that can be done or not .... without a sub.

Dont know what the issue is with the tool change or how your changer works but maybe you can add to your M6start.m1s something like the following

If GetSelectedTool()=GetCurrentTool Then
 End
 End if

no no my tool change is only controled by outputs, it is a pretty simple code :-D but it Works
My tool change is 3 spindles on air cylinders so I have a offset on each spindle G54 G55 G56.

so every time it starts a program it have to activate the cylinder, speed up the spindle and that take time.

Maybe Block Delete would do as you want then.

Hi Dear Mike DK;
I have also Alberti machine with CNC90 TF36 CONTROLLER, so i want to rebuild to MACH3. as you know all servo drives in Alberti machine are analog from "ELMO". could you please tell me how you did it and what motion controller i should use?
if it is possible i dont want to replace ELMO servo drives with new pulse/dir servo drives (because of high cost of new digital drives) please lead me.
