Tool Check Macro?

Where are non volatile values?

I've been doing some macro programming lately and I've been using the non volatile user value storage (150-159) Is there a way I can see (and alter) those in the PARMS list in CNC12? While they are useful, I feel like when I use them I'm putting the values into a black box and I'd like to be able to...

Re: ShopBot Acorn ATC retrofit

I'd be happy to share the macro when I'm done with it. Right now it's a bit of a mess. I need to clean it up, fix the comments, etc. Once I do I'm happy to post it.

I got a CNC Depot S30C spindle and retrofitted it: https://photos.app.goo.gl/AFtf83bhhoeiDpb87 I have a pretty beefy control system ...
