I am looking to purchase the Tormach 770 + 4th axis, as a high end hobby mill for building parts for model airplanes. It will mainly be used to mill carbon fibre plate approx 3/32 and parts out of aluminium block.
The questions that I have are:
o) Does it come in a 240 V option ? if so what are the amps required ? as I am concerned that I need to go to 3 phase for 20 amps in Australia.
o) Are you able to mill small aluminium parts say 5 inch's cubed without running a flood coolant system ? unfortunately I am limited on space.
o) What Do you recommend the automatic manual / oiler?
o) Is there significant advantage to running the touch screen over a normal screen ?
o) I am also looking at the available controllers ? as I would like the unit to work out of the box... any recommendations about either Mach3 or EMC2
Apologies in advance for the laundry list of questions.
p.s. anyone have one of these machines in OZ ?
Thank in Advance,
