    It's a good one.

    I once worked in a shop where the second idler ran an injection molding machine. It ran fine, even without extra caps for the second idler.

    You are getting somewhere. Is there a menu for transfer commands visible at the TNC? The options should be "read-in selected program", read-out selected program", read-out all programs", etc.
