Lathe tool offsets

Postby Derek » Mon Oct 30, 2017 10:58 pm

So in my list of must haves I forgot tool offsets. With a mill only the Z axis uses a tool offset. With a lathe it needs both Z and X. Since UCCNC only uses the Z offset when G43 Hxx is applied a workaround will need to happen. This really is a deal breaker for me since I have a quick change tool post and touching off each time is a non starter.
