the last three times i have turned on my machine, the tools saved in the tool table have been completely gone. the tool table is empty. this is the first time this has happened since i got the machine. i save the tools and fixture at shut down the same way i have been doing since i first started using it.
this normally isn't a huge deal for me since i change tools in the holders so often but lately i have been running a repeat job. luckily there is only two tools in this job so it only takes a few minutes to set the heights but it is getting old.
does anyone have an idea of what is going on?
Quit mach 3 after a tool table save and reopen the just the program.
If it doesn't work, try to locate your tool table file on the drive thru a search. Maybe even hand writing a file letting the program discover & open the file on its own might work, then just save over that. I'd call Tormach before you try anything
