    Re: Haas TL1

    And back to the original point. If you want to compare the cost of Tormach to HAAS, it should be an apples-to-apples comparison. Bare-bones is half the cost, and when you start adding on...

    Re: Path Pilot on non Tormach

    Check the Novakon forum. Quite a few people there made the conversion.

    That would be elcome news. The thing that scared my away from the SPL over the years was the painfully slow rapids speed.

    Pricing new to used is apples and oranges. The companies selling the used lathes have often reached a point in the lifecycle of the lathe that the expected repair costs and associated downtime make...

    Re: 770M Initial impressions

    Can you point me to that? I haven't seen it, and don't see it on the Tormach blog or website anywhere.

  8. Re: Believable negative review of Tormach company support and product quality

    ...

    I am with Ray. I have two 3D printers... frequently both of them are running around the clock. I maybe end up scrapping 1 in 20 parts. Almost bulletproof, and "dialing it in" isn't hard.

    Syil America? Hard to believe they are still limping along. They had quite the checkered past in their day, back when they were Big Dog Metalworks. But that was years ago.

    I suggest you go to the Syil section and start reading. Maybe jump back a few pages (which is a few years) to when there were a few unhappy customers. It was an active forum about a decade ago, and...

    Re: Switch for Rapid Turn.

    Yes, a 15A rated 3 phase switch will be plenty for the 1.5hp Tormach motor (each phase carries about 7A at full load).

    You are not the first to do this; there is at least one other person on this...

    Re: No Path Pilot for Rapid Turn?

    Pathpilot version 1.7.2 (which you are using) was released on 15 April 2015.

    The RapidTurn product was released in June 2016, and a new version of pathpilot was released to support RapidTurn at...
  16. Re: 5C spindle modification for Tormach mill ?

    So why don't you just chuck them up in a 3/4" R-8 collet? Assuming your raw stock is 3/4" in diameter? Or a 7/8" R-8 collet with slightly larger stock?

    Or if they are undersized enough that the...

    Can't you just move the carriage to where you want your "safe height to be, and push the "SET G30" button? After that, it should stay at that position until you reset it again.

    Re: Tormach 1100M Info Possible Series 4!

    That would tend to point to Tormach integrating the Mesa 7i92 card into the electronics cabinet, so you can plug into it with ethernet cable instead of having to run a DB25 cable.

    Not if it is still using TTS. You going to up the spindle HP than you need to shift to a more secure machine taper in the spindle.
