How to set up a dual lathe tool holder

Experimenter
Experimenter

I am having some issues reagarding setting up a dual lathe tool holder (holder shown below Station 03). It looks like it does orient the first holder correctly, but not the second one.

 

Is there a relation ship between the devise mount and the toolmount.Tool_holder.JPG

 

Any help or suggestion is appriciated.

I believe the way to do this is have the holder a device of its own, with 2 tool mount junctions (each oriented correctly).  Then add the 2 stick tools as 2 separate tool objects.

I do have the holder as a separate device with 2 tool mount junctions oriented correctly. It appears once I bring in the second tool it mounts it in the second tool mount junction. Orientation is off.

The tool stick I do sees is a "parameter Tool" this is always created realted to the turning/spindle workplane. You could try to define a different "working Angle" for each pocket.
