Does anyone know if the TTS CNC starter kit on the Little Machine Shop web site $810.00, is the same as the set on the Tormach site for $855.00 ?
It looks the same.
That set got revised sometime in the last year or so. It used to come with a dial indicator instead of the digital. And the tool holders used to not have the slot for ATC compatibility.
If the LMS sets are old stock, then this might be what you'll get.

Vertical Lathe tool holders and more.
I ended up ordering the manual set and a few extra's direct from Tormach. I just didn't need some of the stuff in the full CNC set, like four 1/2" holders.
One thing I wanted to add to the order but did not was the 1/4" set screw mill holder because the picture on the web site is showing the older non ATC style and it was not clear what would be shipped. All other items showed pictures of parts with the ATC slot so I am hoping that is what I get.
I figured that if I was going to go the TTS route I might as well make sure all the parts have the ATC slots for future use.
Good to know, thank you. I will pick up the 1/4" on the next order.
I figured the LMS set was identical it was just the description was slightly different... Tormach site says it includes a rack, LMS web site does not mention a rack.
I just couldn't pull the trigger for 855 right now ... I want to save up for a square column machine! I am hooked!
