    15L Slant-Pro live tooling?

    Is there any option to have live tooling on the Tormach 15L Slant-Pro? I doubt it but if there is anyway to have this on the machine it would drastically sway my purchase decision.

    Thanks,

    You would need to synchronize the spindle with a servo motor and there is no place on the turret also.

    OK...I was pretty sure it wasn't possible. I sent Tormach an email a couple weeks ago but never did get a reply from them.

    Thanks,

    I asked Tormach about live tooling when the SBL-15 1st came out and the answer back was "not likely". That was 5-6 years ago I think, but it seems like nothing has changed there.
