    Just checked an old mach 3 backup, and it's the tools3.dat file in the macro folder for the machine, however it's not a basic text file.

    It does, it's just the file format isn't human readable.

    All the information is viewable in the tool table within Mach, or I think there may be a program available to view the data outwith mach, but that may just exist in a figment of my imagination!
