Title: TOOL STORE tool definitions
Post by: xr750 on December 10, 2011, 09:47:27 PM
TOOL STORE tool definitions
I am in need of more detailed information which describes the details of the entry in Tool Store.
I am a novice trying to define my Inch tools to the tables in the tool store and I am having a hard time figuring just what the parameters describe. The two letter labels confuse me. Is there somewhere I can look and find out what the different parameters define? There are diagrams that flash up but, they go away before I can scrutinize them and when they are going to flash, to me, is unpredictable.
