Place the setter on a surface that is not going to be machined — in this case the rear of a machine vice.

 

 


Put the machine into the handle mode.

 

 


Using the handle, move the tool to the setter indicator.

 

 


This is the current offset in the control before being measured.

 

 


Now the tool is on the setter.

 

 


Pressing the cycle start will enter the tlo into memory. The tlo is entered into the correct offset. No values have to be added, eliminating any mistakes in setting up the machine.

 

 


This is the tool length for this tool from the spindle face. It will not change.
