About my home switch and manual tool change
« on: October 09, 2014, 02:44:01 AM »
Hi all people in here!

I think it is called a home switch.

I need a little help to understand how to make a tool change manually the best way.

My home switch:

It got a wire into the spindle motor.

But how do I do a tool change and use this for setting the the correct new tool lenght/height after a manual tool change.

Any help on this question.

Hi, Hood

Thanks for your answer. I have been looking at the side before.

What I need is more specific how to use the auto tool height.

Let me try to explain what I meant.

When I start a router job, where there is a need of tool change or just setting the macihne running correct. I do not know how to do.

But When i have clampted my material. What to do is it now I use the auto tool height or is it between the tool change and how do
I do that.

measurement from a fixed point or just where the tool are ????

I dont know how or then I have to use the auto tool height or "home button" is it the same ??? ect. Maybe some good videos. I think most of them are use less for my beginner status and my small cheap cnc router.

Can you please help me...

Talk to Ger21, I am sure he sells a screenset (very reasonably priced) that does what you want.
