    Re: Tormach sales

    TORMACH just posted an "End of summer, $1000 worth of FREE upgrades" if you purchase a 15L Slant Pro.

    But, I still think $15,000 is asking waaayy too much for a 2 Horsepower lathe.

    Re: Tormach sales

    I actually flew up there from TX and visited. They were very nice and I enjoyed checking out the latest stuff in person but they wouldn't even give any discount for buying both a fully loaded mill and lathe.. kinda put me off, and I'm a current customer with a series III mill already.

    I think the there must be accountants with a more prominent decision making role to make Tormach as profitable as possible.

    I look at what I paid a year ago for replacement parts and See an average of 20 to 25% increase. This is before the trade war mind you.

    I would rather go back to paid shipping If that is what cause the change in pricing.

    The costs are making entry level VMCs and Haas’ look more enticing.

    Free shipping is only available to US customers. International shipping for parts and supplies is still ridiculously overpriced.

    Re: Tormach sales

    It would be nice if Tormach could warehouse machines in Canada for shipment to Canadian customers thus avoiding the import duties the USA charges on Chinese products. CNC mills, lathes and most other machining tools enter Canada Duty free. If they could reduce their machine prices by 25% they could dominate the Canadian hobbyist / entry level cnc machine market. They would have to have their machines cUA or CSA approved before doing this.

    I ship to CA all the time for my business. It's a real bummer when I'm sending $100 USD of parts and it costs $43 to get it there.

    Many of my customers have U.S. shipping addresses that they cross the border to pick their stuff up, but that's obviously a luxury for small items and people close to the border.
