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.

SPINDLE SPEED (S)

To set the speed in revolutions per minute (rpm) of the spindle, program: S~

If the speed override switch is enabled and not set at 100 percent, the speed is different from what is programmed. It’s okay to program S0, but the spindle does turn if that is done.
