    Goddammit, even Tornos representative told these are no longer available. Please help, if anyone uses similar holders.
    Machine sits idle...

    Did you not get any holders with the machine?

    Are you a toolroom jockey? Can you copy some of what you currently have?

    Watch E-bay (or your equiv) for someone selling similar machine.

    The ENC machines pop up from time to time on E-Bay (USA), so keep your search spread wide.

    However, you then need to hope that the seller will bother with shipping international....


    Toolroom Jockey - means that you can build your own.

    Check with Schwanog and see if their partner GoltenBoldt has/can make them. Also check with Arno Werkezeuge out of Switzerland. Finally, TTC may be able to help you, but I'm only familiar with their NA subsidiary, TTC North America.

    Buying several brand new holders will cost a min of 4x what I am sure that the machine cost him / worth.

    Tornos supports to the 20 yr old mark.
    At least for the non-popular machines. (like mine)

    IDK if they built the ENC models once they came out with the Deco - which I believe was in about 1998.
