As we begin 2021, we have found ourselves in a situation where our lead-times have substantially increased due to COVID-19 pandemic-related issues.
Those issues combined with high demand and heavy shipping volume is resulting in a longer than normal delivery timeframes for many Tormach machines and accessories.
We are working diligently to resolve these issues and look forward to bringing our lead-times back to normal. Unfortunately, this is going to take some time.
As of now, we anticipate that these lead times will continue into the second quarter. We appreciate your patience during this time.


The G88 cycle is intended for boring and uses a P word, where P specifies the number of seconds to dwell.

Program: G88 X~ Y~ Z~ A~ R~ L~ P~

The G88 cycle is as follows:

  • Step 1: Preliminary canned cycle motion.
  • Step 2: Move the Z-axis only at the current feed rate to the Z position.
  • Step 3: Dwell for the P number of seconds.
  • Step 4: Stop the spindle turning.
  • Step 5: Stop the program so the operator can retract the spindle manually.
  • Step 6: Restart the spindle in the direction it was going.
