    Essentially yes. This older Fanuc 6 doesn't have G52 so once the tools have been set (I use G59 for setting tool length offsets) subsequent machining is done relative to fixture offsets G54 to G58.

    Does the control have a single block switch? You might be able to go from hole to hole using that function.

    Stickies

    I participate in the Cox model engine forums from time to time.

    The entire first page is full of stickies. Just clutters up the whole first page.

    A very real consideration when looking at an old machine is the fact that its brothers and sisters are probably mostly dead or retired.
