Bowl bit setup clarification please

going to try a bowl bit for the first time. I’ve read in the forum to set set xyz with a 1/4 inch bit then set bowl bit z. when setting the z using the tool setter, do i flip it over then do z or keep it in the xyz position. thanks

Doesn’t matter as long as you touch off the thinner part when you turn it over.

Set the XY origin with an endmill. Swap in your bowl bit. Keep the touch plate in the same postion used to set the XY origin and probe for your Z height.
