    Off fishing in an hour but this has just gone to the top of my to-do list. Thanks Christophe and that T-shirt is well deserved.

    Christophe and Paul are correct.
    Setting a zero relative of tooling, not where engraved marks indicate, is a real time and material saver. Example given with Morse taper adapters is perfect example, not to mention placement of factory markings are totally inconsistent; some are flush and others protrude from the casting. No agreement I know has ever been hinted at between manufacturers, of marking and where taper ejects.
