Re: compact 5 cnc tool change HELP

No , M06 is the instruction for the toolturret, enter the offset values you have found with the appropriate direction (+ or -) ,
the toolnumber (number of indexes from the actual tool working) and that's it,
There is no difference having a manual toolholder or an automatic turret, the values to use for the M06 instructions are the same,
except for the automatic indexing.
The descriptions in the manuals are really good. By experimenting without a workpiece its trivial to find out the mode of operation.
Enter dummy values and run the M06 instructions and watch the movements of the tool to understand how it works,
I did the same when starting with the machine, there are no mysteries.
