You might be better off learning about G50 and work offset shifts
Increment the whole work offset Z #variable position.

Screw around with tool length offsets is subject to a whole new set of "what the hell happened there"
You might beable to write to the tool length variable then call it with an H offset but resetting it and knowing where your at any one time is going to be suspect too.

Being new to this  I advise to learn the basic before you crash, burn then  :'(

Ya-Nvr-No
I have it running quite well with your earlier suggestion of offsetting each and every call for Z. It only takes a couple strokes of copy/replace.

"You might be better off learning about G50 and work offset shifts

I should look into how that offset can be adjusted per pass with a var..
