Well, the Tormach finally got home and set up late last month. Decided to put it in the middle of the garage. Everything behind it is on wheels to roll about. Glad I went through the exercise as even with two Bridgeports, an Index 55 vertical mill, two 13" South Bends and an Enco 12" lathe, there is now more room to move about in the shop with the Tormach than without!

Anyway, working through projects that you can get by with the conversational programming. Using the thread mill routine, I milled a 84 hole collet rack of MDF that fits in a drawer of my Enco lathe bench. The MDF fixture is on the table. Thanks for the info guys.

The mill looks great, you should have a lot of fun with it.

You're gonna love it! Might never look that clean again. I know mine doesn't.

Just got my little Taig CNC going, and I already want to get rid of all the manual stuff.

Will a Tormach cut 3mm deep in 316l with a 10mm endmill and 33% step over?
