Using locators with a Thermwood

CNC guys....

Cnn edge finders and indicators be used to locate workpieces on a thermwood model? Currently I program vertical turning centers and I was wondering if the same techniques we use in machine shop can used for locating workpieces on a Thermwood...

Yes. It is the main way we locate fixtures on our 5 axis machines. I even use it for sheet stock on the 3 axis. Process is exactly the same on a Thermwood as it is on Mills and lathes.
