    Coolant Pump Upgrade

    Just added a Tormach (stock) coolant pump, and it is quite pathetic in terms of pressure and flow rate. Is there a forum consensus of a more powerful aftermarket pump? Is the mechanical interface a standard of some sort?
    Thanks!

    Hi Dan,

    What machine do you have ?
    First thing i would do is change out the standard line to 5/8 ID Hose.
    The flow will greatly increase,

    Secondly i would look into some kind of filter to stop the nozzles from being clogged with chips.

    Also, check out LMD-NC.com
    We make coolant rings for the Tormach machines that give 360 coverage and work with the ATC

    Folks on the Tormach Facebook groups seem to like inexpensive sumps for use as coolant pumps.

    I use a sump pump on my diy mill.
    They're very strong. I have a 400w and it's that powerful I had to fit a diverter pipe in-line to drop the pressure.
    Cost me £30gbp at the time 3 years ago.

    Check the facebook groups. I and several others have posted links to upgraded pumps available on amazon and through other retailers. Pretty simple to do.
