In step Create a: CNC7.TCH file in the gang tooling doc I provided.

Would be nice to understand what this is, where to store it, and WHAt type of document I'm I creating? Can someone explane? What is a .TCH file "teach"??

As Marc posted earlier, the Tool CHange file has changed names and now ends in a .mac extension. He also noted where it is stored.

The TSB you posted tells what type of file it is, how to create it, and what it contains.
Cheers,
