A tool magazine includes at least one tool carriage movable along a circulation path. The tool holders each have tool pot sockets to which the tool pots are mountable. The tool holders are disposed pivotably about a pivot axis with respect to the at least one tool carriage. The tool pot sockets include a first and second tool pot sockets. An angle is created in a pivoting direction about the pivot axis between a first tool pot mounted to the first tool pot socket and a second tool pot mounted to the second tool pot socket. The turning device turns each of the tool holders about the pivot axis at a position on the circulation path. The tool pot stopper positions each of the tool pots and stops one of the first tool pot and the second tool pot at a pivotable location in the pivoting direction.

A turning control device (50) calculates an approach angle for setting a thrust force to zero based on thrust force data when a cutting depth is designated through an input unit (74). When the approach angle is thus calculated, the turning control device (50) outputs, to a B-axis driving unit (46), a command amount for inclining a turning tool (36) with a point (P1) as a center. Moreover, the turning control device (50) outputs a command amount for controlling the cutting depth to an X-axis driving unit (42) for linearly displacing the turning tool (36) in an X-axis direction based on the cutting depth and the approach angle. Then, turning work is performed by rotating a workpiece (10) by a spindle driving unit (40) and displacing the turning tool (36) in a Z-axis direction by a Z-axis driving unit (44) depending on a cutting speed.
