Question Tools won't zero

Help! I've zeroed my T1, Calibrated my switch, Measured my tools, and the only tool that zeros on z correctly is the T1 I set to my table top. The rest of my tools are about a half inch off! I'm sure I'm doing something incorrectly I just can't for the life of me figure it out!

Did you calibrate the switch before measuring any tools?

Once switch is calibrated, measure all.

IS there a green box next to the Z? IF so you have pressed another button that you should not have.

Type in "G92.1 Z" and press enter to remove it

You have been posting a good number of procedural errors. Have you had or scheduled the ATC orientation with CAMaster?

Thumbs up Thanks Gary.

I did go to the orientation but it's been over three months. I need to find my notes and could probably take the course again. I did have the green box. everything is running smooth on this cut so far. I do appreciate the help. Thank you.
