Setting up the tailstock involves setting a tailstock Restricted Zone.

Use Setting 93 and Setting 94 to make sure that the turret or any tools in the turret do not collide with the tailstock. Test the limits after you change these settings.

These settings make a restricted zone. The restricted zone is a protected rectangular area at the lower right of the lathe work space. The restricted zone changes so that the Z-Axis and tailstock maintain a safe distance from each other when below a specified X-Axis clearance plane.

Setting 93 specifies the X-Axis clearance plane and Setting 94 specifies the separation between the Z Axis and the B Axis (tailstock axis). If a programmed motion crosses the restricted zone, a warning message appears.
