    No real experience, but if they’re young enough I would expect their skin is elastic enough that it would.

    All I know is I have a tan line and permanent indent from my wedding ring.

    It's still only going to retract to the R plane between pecks. I think the OP wants to start in the hole and retract above the part for each peck.

    Haas does it but I don't know about any other...

    I do exactly what Bill mentioned on my Okuma. I used to do the whole touch off the face of the part thing but I wanted something similar to setting tools on the machining centers.

    General tolerance, not in a feature control frame? I would say both.

    We had the same problem with ours. The rapids are so fast the machine seems to anticipate reaching the Z and starts moving in X-Y.

    You might want to try increasing your feed by 2-5% to actually compress the holder.
    I bet the short time spent reversing at the bottom of the hole is straining the tap and holder.

    Also, I don't...

    One place I worked had a retired guy work part time keeping the shop clean.
    He even collected the empty aluminum cans and turned them in for scrap. When he saved up enough, he'd buy the shop pizza.

    You need to add your tool radius to the finish Z and radius you are cutting.
    Basically you have to program to the tangent points of the tool radius.
