Turning and tools

Thats it. I have a lathe with a 12 tools revolver (6 normal, 6 motorized tools).
Now my problem. If I setup the zero of a tool, I check this i.e. in aluminium 7075 with  specific parameters (ap, rpm, etc).
For this the zero works fine and I get the expected tolerance.
But If I now mecanize Nylon P6, I get other diameters, the tolerance quite bigger.

My question: If I use the same tool for different materials, how can I maintain the offsets of the tools?
