Default Setting pen offset

I canít seem to find any info on this. I built a pen holder for my Stinger and canít find where to set the offset. I know I can zero the pen in the X0 Y0 but how do I set the offset if I want to use the laser?
Thanks,
George

It will be in the macro for the laser. If you change it for the pen, it won't be set correctly for your spindle.

You can add a second button to your WinCNC screen and a write a separate macro, one for the spindle and one for the pen. You will have to study up the WinCNC manual to do this - it isn't hard to do.
