oeSoeraa,

I have recieved my quote for the entire spindle system including cooling water pump -- A$910

I have just posted my first ever UTube video (  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXiN70j658Y   ) of the first file I cut on my machine last week. It will be fantastic

when I replace the very temporary Ryobi with the new spindle.

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.

I will be ordering the spindle in a couple of weeks - bills to pay.

I am installing dust extraction at the moment. 1200cfm 4" system that should work ok.

I am wondering if SAKA can supply Vacuum hold down systems? I will ask in my next email.  They are noisy and suck allot of power.

Hi Bruce,

Did you end up ordering the spindle and other accessories??

If so how has it been running?

Spindle has been running perfectly for some months now.  It this moment I am cutting a 3d file for a model 3.4m RC Glider. Each surface takes about 3hrs at 90mm/sec.

Spindle is quiet and does not get warm at all.

Very happy!

Nice one Bruce,

Could you tell me what you ordered from these guys??

Does the spindle need water cooling if so did you order a pump??

and did you go with the ER20 collets.

Also are you controling spindle speed via Mach through the inverter??

Sorry for all the questions

J

Hey Bruce, is it possible to post a quick video of it running so we can all hear the noise these motors make. I laughed when I watched your video as I am running the same Ryobi router and the noise is deafening. Nice job as well
