Includes Tormach TTS Manual Starter Set (Inch)
You don’t need a CNC to take advantage of the Tormach Tooling System. Manual operations benefit from quick change, reduced clearance, and increased rigidity. This tooling package includes a basic set that will introduce you to all of those features. The manual mill operators set improves productivity in manual milling.
The precision 5" lock-down CNC milling machine vise features a compact size that allows multiple vises on CNC mill table.
The top, bottom of vise bed, gib, jaws, swivel base, and all plate mounting surfaces are ground. The hardened and ground replaceable jaws on this vise are 4" wide, 1.46" deep, and open 4.2". The vise is 11.2" long. The vise is 3.94" high.
The replaceable jaws can be mounted on either end of the fixed and movable jaw supports providing a wide range of clamping distances.
The set of ten pairs of thin parallels come in a fitted case. They are 1/8" thick and 6" long. The heights are 1/2", 5/8", 3/4", 7/8", 1", 1-1/8", 1-1/4", 1-3/8", 1-1/2", and 1-5/8". The parallels are made of high grade alloy steel hardened to 52 to 58 Rc. They are parallel within 0.0002" on the top and bottom. The pairs are matched in height within 0.0004"
The 20 piece TiN coated HSS end mill set includes both 2 flute and 4 flute end mills. The center cutting end mills are 3/16" to 3/4" by 16ths. The set comes in a fitted case.
The precision 1-2-3 blocks are ground and case hardened on all sides to 50-60 Rc. The blocks are 1" by 2" by 3". They are parallel within 0.0002", flat within 0.0002" and square within 0.00021". The set includes two matched blocks. The blocks have 23 holes through them, 5 are threaded 3/8-16 NC.
This package includes 5 different sizes of combined drills and countersinks, commonly called center drills. The center drill set is high speed steel and includes sizes 1,2,3, 4, and 5. These are 60 degree center drills.
The Tormach Tooling System Starter Set includes two set screw end mill adapters, one ER-20 collet chuck with three collets, a TTS R8 collet, a 1/4" drill chuck, plus wrenches and installation tools.
Chris' Tips Tool switching with the Tormach Tooling System (TTS) is extremely easy: Simply loosen the drawbar, slide out the current tool holder, then slip in the next and retighten. The unique geometry of the TTS tool holder ensures that, as the drawbar is tightened, the tool holder moves into an exact Z height while increasing rigidity. Each TTS holder has a shoulder that is undercut so it contacts the spindle itself, not the end of the collet. As the drawbar is tightened the collet will simultaneously squeeze the shank and be pulled upward into the spindle taper. This simultaneous action, grasping while moving up, pulls the tool holder tightly against the spindle face. The high-pressure contact between the shoulder of the tool holder and the spindle is the equivalent of a zero tolerance fit; the vertical location (Z-height) of the tool is exact. The initial placement, created by simply sliding the tool holder up until it stops, is normally within a few thousandths of an inch. The final location, after tightening the collet, is exact, highly repeatable, and not affected by the variable tension of the drawbar or wear on the collet.
