Tool offset help
Ok, I think I understand now. Using the tool library assumes you're already at your origin, BEFORE you select a tool. I think that's where I was getting tripped up. Thanks for the explanation... It finally makes sense to me now.

Though, IMO, being able to set a zero with any tool would be more intuitive. That's how it's done with CNC machines. All it cares about is knowing the height of each tool, relative to a common datum (in my case, the face of the tool holder that registers against the spindle nose).

James over at Clough42 on Youtube has a good video about it... The relevant part starts at about the 23 minute mark.

Thanks for the help, Yuriy.
