It would help if told us exactly which tool setup pad you have bought and how you are trying to set it up ??

So it just a touch pad then.

What CB script do you have entered into your 'Auto Tool Zero' button ??

That's most likely to be your problem then.

Do a search for touch probe then choose one of the scripts posted which you think is best suited to your application.

Search box - top of main (Mach Forum) page.
