I still need to buy a spindle for the MPCNC. As I read a lot that e.g. Makita/Kress 1050 are very, very loud I thought about getting a spindle from China. A lot people write that they work good and are quieter.
I looked around on Aliexpress and of course there are tons of them. I guess some will be good ones and some will have worse quality.
- If you recently bought a spindle from China and you are satisfied with it (in terms of quality, security etc), can you please write the seller name or give me a link to it if it is still available?
- I live in Germany, if anybody bought a spindle from here, can you write me what you had to pay (toll/taxes etc).
I am sure a lot of other users here would profit from a small collection of “approved” spindles
Thank you very much for you help!August 26, 2019 at 1:27 pm #110903
- the ER11 48V brushed ones are relatively ok if you are patient (12k RPM max, also kinda underpowered); the 400W brushless ones are fine, but the drivers are garbage; I currently use a water cooled 800W spindle (this one) + a 2.2kw VFD (ebay, shipped from Germany) and it works well, but I doubt it reaches the advertised 24k RPM (the VFD says 21k, and judging from how low I’ve had to drop cutting speed it sounds about right)
- There are aliexpress sellers with warehouses in Germany, Italy or Spain; some of them also sell on ebay.
I’m pretty sure the only approved spindle is that yellow dewalt thing 😛August 29, 2019 at 12:01 pm #111337
