I can't be 100% certain as it must be over 10 years since I set up my lathe initially, I think however they should be ok.

Ok thanks, i'll flip them and restart tomorrow, see what happens.

While you're there Hood, when adding another tool using the method you outlined, is there any need to reference an existing tool first or just go in, touch Z, take a cut and measure X then set the touch-X DRO and press touch X??
