The default router profile and screen have 2 types of vacuum buttons and the supporting macros (110 & 111, 112 & 113) already in the run ops tab if that helps.

I think all default screens (minus lathe) also have Remember Position and Return to Position buttons that should work well for your tool change position. Remember it once and return to it as often as you like.
;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D
