    To be fair, everyone does. Want to add a 4th axis to a Fanuc mill? Fanuc will charge you $750 minimum for their tech to come out, **** around on his laptop for 2 hours, then spend 20 minutes loading the option file in the control. Doosan's $8k TSC kit consists of a $2000 pump and $500 in hoses. And so on, and so on.

    And back to the original point. If you want to compare the cost of Tormach to HAAS, it should be an apples-to-apples comparison. Bare-bones is half the cost, and when you start adding on accessories, tormach extras are 1/2-1/3 the cost (tormach turret is $3995, HAAS turret is $8095).

    Yes, the HAAS is probably easy to quantify as more than 2-3 times the capability of the SPL15, but not everybody needs or can afford the extra capability.

    I just hope that when the 25% machine tool tariffs go away, that the Tormach prices drop. But that is probably a faint hope.
