Nice machine on "you tube" - hope you will have a lot of fun -

when you receive the spindle and water pump
don't worry about the slow water-flow .
I was wondering about if there was something wrong,
but the spindle has never been very hot.

It look's like they have a new name Shanghai SAKA CNC Equipment Co., Ltd
It's  the same machine on that web page.

They have recently got a web-site. only 80hits
-they did not have a web site before - only on made-in-china.com


I have sent a mail to them -

Only good things to say about the Wingspread company -hoperfully you get an anwser from them with prices and so on.
It's a Chinese brand, but the spindle I have testet was very good and still running. Compared to any hand-router it's lot better.
1rpm to 24000rpm - watercooled - no dust blowing other then from the cut it self .

as for collet - you probably find an 8mm insert from a local machine-dealer.
(I use 8mm -just because it a bit stronger at this feedrates 2000mm/min 19mm straight a head)
it's an ER20 collet size and can take a least 16mm collet-insert.

The last spindle was shipped by air and under a week it was up running -( around 140AUD)-

Only thing is to be very spesific when ordering -so everything is asked for and priced.

2,2kw with inverter was around 800 AUD ( I think you are in Australia ).
it is round - with a diameter 80mm ( ask if they can make a sutable clamp to you)
But please see the answer from Wingspread company.
They have changed brand for some of their spindles -
They come with ER20 collets - but ask for everything:
2,2kw spindle + inverter + waterpump +x meters of rubber-tubing
+ 6mm/collet + wrenches - (for some reason they don't have 8mm)
(ask for a set of engravers to.They come with a insert in 6mm collet to 3mm)

I think you will be pleased with this -compared to the hand-router with brushes

And I recomand helix carbide bits - they make a LOT less noise then "normal" bits.
I found good one from http://www.american-carbide.com/
(but you have to order many and shipping cost is high)


2,2kw =2,95HP

The Spindle is a very important part on a wood-router - I had build a table and was using very cheap hand-routers - and I tryed a few brand's
They all burn after two -three full days run and max feedrate was around F900 (before they start to loose speed)
with 8mm/bit in 19mmMDF (MDF=medium desity woodfiber --quality loudspeakers use this material)
then I found this :

brushless watercooled spindles at a very nice prices -

I have tested a 3kw + inverter + waterpump and have run this for around 6month with around 3 to 18 hours runs a day
easy cutting 19mmMDF at F2000 with 8mm/CARBIDbits -  ;D  ;D
I have a 2,2kw for test now - and it also cuts with the same feedrate with no speed-loss -and i think it will run a long time to.
and they all run with 240v 1phase
