I'm getting close to purchasing a TL-1 with the following options:
I've read the pros/cons on this machine and I think it is a good fit for what I need to do.
My question is what do I do for tool holding. The options are:
1. regular CXA toolpost
2. manual indexing tool post (Quadra etc)
3. Dorian manual turret
4. Haas TT1 4 position automatic tool changer
I'm leaning toward option #4, but I have some concerns.
1. how repeatable is it? I'll have a boring bar hanging out 6"
2. how do I mount drills on it?
Opinions, comments concerns?
