    I’m new to the CNC world, so this might be a stupid question …

    Over the last few days I have built my MPCNC and done some plotting with a pen. The only thing that’s missing now is a spindle!

    Today I received my 500W brushless spindle from  Thing is, this spindle has a 55mm diameter and I can’t find a mount for it. Not a problem, I can just make my own. Now, while making my mount a question raised. See the following two pictures:


    The Question. Why do post people I see on Youtube mount their spindle like in the first picture? Wouldn’t you have more working height with the spindle further up, like in the second picture? I feel like there is something I’m missing here …



    You are 100% correct, I have no idea why they all do that.



    Fast response!

    Okay thank you. Can’t wait to get this thing running. Still have to wait for the power supply for the spindle though 🙁



    I like the logo/tag designed into the part, nice touch!
