tool changing problem

Postby lantyslee » 21 Nov 2017, 21:49

Hello All
I'm relatively new to cnc milling but have now successfully set up my machine and it seems to be working well.
My problem has come now I am machining more ambitious jobs which need a tool change mid cycle. I have hopefully configured settings accordingly and the machine does indeed pause when required for a change of tool, but when the change is complete and I restart the machine to (hopefully) measure tool z offset and continue the z axis simply travels up to the limit stop and everything grinds to a halt.
I don't have a fixed tool sensor but I understand from other posts it is possible to achieve this manually. Thanks in advance for any help. Neil
