        HI DAN, yes you can. One of the fellows over at Machsupport figured it out and it works fine.

        Just a thought, (;-) TP

        > Dan , It should work in TURN using the T word. If it stops at a (Message) with T in it then just push the button again until you get to the next tool change.
