    Entry level positions attract the bottom of the barrel workers. Not sure why you are surprised.

    Milling machines have 0-M controllers, not 0-T. Did someone replace an 0-M controller with an 0-T controller? 0-T are lathe controllers.

    Yes, 2015 Star SV20. I interviewed at a Swiss shop in 2018 and was tested to see if I could set it up. I didn't have much trouble with it even though I had never setup or ran one before.

    A swiss machine is still a lathe. What's so difficult about setting a Swiss lathe compared to a regular 2 axis lathe or a millturn?

    I am not sure where you got that from. I simply stated that many shops, and especially job shops, program at the control.
    Why do I say that? Because it was my experience two years ago when I...

    A round part made on a lathe is not difficult to reverse engineer by just looking at the code. Only the length would be the problem if the part was made on two setups.

    He/she said groove bar so I assume it's an ID groove.
    I highly doubt that the geometry of the groove bar is that far off to cut .03" deeper (I am assuming it's the depth that is the problem). Most...

    I am not sure what you mean by compensating the taper. Are you getting taper over a length, lets say 3"? You compensate the taper in the program itself.

    Yes you can manually touch off the tools by...

    I agree.
    At work we have a 1986 Daewoo Puma with Fanuc 10T and a 1994 Mori Seiki SL35 with Fanuc 0T. The 0T is 8 years newer but is not even half of the controller than the 10T is.

    The 21T is not a very old control. It should have G54-G59 work offsets unlike the bare bones 0T controls that only have Workshift. I am guessing your machine does not have a probe?
    If it has G54-G59...
