HOW TO TAP USING THE TORMACH PCNC 1100 MILLING MACHINE
Only the newest Tormach CNC milling machines offer rigid tapping, therefore a floating tapping head must be used with most Tormach PCNC milling machines. The tapping head allows for a small amount of compression and tension. Tormach sells a few different floating tapping head solutions, one of which has a clutch.
Modular Tension/Compression Tapping Head Kit - $459.95 - This is an expensive set but has quick change collets of different sizes and adjustable slip.
iCarbide sells their own TTS-compatible version for a lot less expensive.
