HOWTO: Tormach TTS Conversion Kit Installation

Here is a quick how-to video I put together using some really old footage I shot in May of 2010.  It shows how the Tormach Tooling System Conversion Kit is installed onto a Maritool brand ER25 tool holder, converting it for use with my CNC milling machine.  This allows tool heights to be measured and set in the tool table ahead of time, allowing uninterrupted CNC program runs with repeatable tool offsets.
