using a turret tool post and a rear tool post???
« on: November 01, 2007, 08:24:48 PM »
I was wondering if this is possible. I have my lathe set up with a turret tool changer. to run this Im using a macro that Grahm wrote for me. But I was wondering if it was also possible to use a rear tool post as well to hold say a parting tool. since when I enter a tool number from 1-6. it calls the macro for the tool changer . would there be a way to set up mach that when i called say tool 7 it would ignore the toolchanger and just use a rear tool post offset.
