TTS Racking System for Tormach Enclosure

TTS Racking System for Tormachs is one of the upcoming reviews I’ll be doing!

We’re getting ready to start something new for 2017: product reviews.

I’ve got a bumper crop of reviews coming up here in the CNCCookbook blog:

  • The Rack:  TTS Racking System by Santa Cruz Electronics.  This is a must-have accessory for anyone who has a Tormach milling machine with enclosure.  I don’t think I could ever do without mine!
  • Lakeshore Carbide Endmills:  I’ve been using Carl’s very fine endmills for a while here at CNCCookbook and want to do a full write-up on them.
  • Tormach’s SmartCool Programmable Coolant Nozzle:  A neat bit of kit that can increase your machine’s throughput.

  • Tool Touchsetter, Tormach Probe, and MillFast ETS/Probe Switch:  This is a neat collection of gear that should greatly automate operations on the Tormach.  I’ll be reviewing them as a package even though they came from 3 completely different sources.  The MillFast box makes it easy to leave both the probe and tooll touchsetter connected and it will automatically switch between them.

  • Santa Cruz Electronics Coolant Nozzle Upgrade:  This is a coolant upgrade from Santa Cruz Electronics that takes you from 1 to 3 nozzles in a very nice package.

  • Chief Machining’s Nifty Vise Jaw System:  This is one of those systems that allows you to repeatably install soft jaws in your machining vise.  Very handy!
  • CNC Broach Tools:  I’ve got one of their broaches in hand that can be used to do broaching on either a CNC Mill or Lathe.  This can really save on second op and subcontracting time for certain projects.

As you can see, there are quite a few interesting products lined up, and I’ll be rolling out a full article on each in the very near future so you can see what we thought of them.

If you’ve got a product for CNC’ers and want us to look at reviewing it, drop me an email ( and let me know what it is.  I’ll take a look and see if it makes sense for us to review it.
