Tool Length Offset - JeffLowe - 10-07-2010

We are trying to incorporate a kinematic for a tool mounted on top of a rotary axis. We load a tool length and angular offset into the tool table to be used by the kinematic. The problem is that tool length in the tool table is also being included in the Z Geo Tool offset as well. How do I disable this. This offsetting is not being done in our .T or .G files, so I have been trying to find it in the C code, but I cannot see where this is occurring in either PmacNCParse.cpp or PmacNCPParse.cpp. Any pointers?
TIA.
