    5/32 4mm ferrule fittings

    I re-located my line from the auto-pump and the old ferrule is already crushed enough that I can't re-use it. Now I'm down with no lubrication system and can't find a source for the stupid ferrule... Do I have to go to Tormach and have to pay $20 to have a compression ferrule shipped from the USA into Canada?

    Where are you finding these size fittings? I spent half the day looking / calling around and 1/8 or 3/16 lots of places lists (no body actually HAS but they could order in a box) but I haven't found anyone who has / can get 5/32 or 4mm fittings that Tormach used for the lubrication line....

    Anyway, just a rant of frustration

    If you have a lathe they are not that hard to make from 360 brass. Not super fussy to make and have them work. Have done it numerous times.

    Not sure where you are in Canada (I'm 60 miles east of Toronto) but they promise Saturday delivery to here.

    Might order those for spares. Made up one from some brass rod tonight, probably over an hour invested in a $.50 item arggg

    (BTW, I'm 1/2 hour or so N of Toronto)

    Thanks for the link

    When I rerouted my oil line I used a push lock fitting. Available from all of the major industrial suppliers like MSC & McMaster as well as mass sellers like , Amazon, Ebay etc. Just a couple dollars. I have more machines than just my Tormach, and I am in the process (long term) of building a couple, so I stocked up on 4mm, 6mm, 8mm, exhaust mufflers, etc. I'm sure there has to be somebody in Canada that has them.

    More than once I've spent a couple hundred dollars of my time to make a part so I could have it today rather than wait until Monday to pick one up at the store. Its both a blessing and a curse to be able to make stuff. LOL.
