    which battery did you get?
  4. Re: Change chip conveyer reverse button functionality

    If this is at all similar to an SL1, then I would say yes. You can probably add or rewire to use a latching relay for this function. I dont have wiring diagrams for your lathe though so I cant be...

    It sounds like you are a beginner, and making an earnest effort here, so I'll word my advice accordingly. I use a DM2900 and its a much bigger machine, but I'm guessing the 2000/2100/2400 are pretty...

    You realize there is a practically infinite aftermarket for machine tools which work on multiple machines and all have nearly identical functionality, right? Do you really believe this or is this...

    Re: get tormachs $2100 4th axis for $700

    Why not?

    Why would I not be able to convert a rotary table to CNC and sell them? 100% of the parts would be purchased from somewhere besides Tormach. 100% of the custom parts would be designed and...

    you know what I just realized..

    there is probably already a ton of off the shelf NEMA motor flange adapter blocks that could simply have for more holes drilled in them to mount to the TSK160...

    In true internet forum tradition you make wrong assumptions about things you couldn't possibly know about people on here.

    On the idea that making tools is somehow a waste of time or some kind of inefficiency.

    Its pretty much impossible Tormach did any R&D on the table besides the motor mounting. They are not going to be taking the table apart and regrinding worms or surfaces, only to end up with exactly...

    Re: get tormachs $2100 4th axis for $700

    aww man...

    if you want to check elsewhere..the 6" table is a "TSK160"..perhaps the 8" is TSK180? or something? someone else probably sells it too

    or just get the 6 inch!
