    I believe you need to loosen the top nut and tighten the bottom nut if you are attempting to tighten the belts. Loosening the top nut will allow the threaded rod to slide down thru the casting so...

    Very nicely done Stan!! The green paint with the contrasting wood makes a great look.

    Brian - thanks for the video link. Those look interesting, but as you say - you still need to use wrenches to R&R the collet into the spindle nose. The photo you shared looked like it had a taper...

    Dan - thanks for the photos! That looks like a great vintage drill press in very good shape. I think you could look around on Ebay for a vintage looking task/work lamp to match your new tool. Great...

    Jim I think this depends on the particular mounting arrangement for the tool forks, and the rigidity (or lack of) of the forks. I don't know about "hard precision" and what that really means. Agreed...

    Depending on the size and quality of the drill bits you are using, it may well be worth while to resharpen. I use Precision Twist Drill Cobalt Jobber Length and replacement bits (1/2" diameter) are...

    Wes - I am assuming that your Fadal is a cnc mill similar to my Matsuura. On my Matsuura, the spindle only moves up and down (Z direction) and there is no X-Y motion. Mine does have a very large...

    Brian - I'm not sure I quite understand how these work. How are these retained into the spindle, and what is the function of the tapered end? Are the collet wrenches still required to remove and...

    Brian,

    My personal feeling is the for "diy hobby use" open loop steppers may be perfectly fine - as long as the system doesn't loose steps or stall one of the motors. I feel that my Avid Pro4824...

    Ben - I use the Avid Auto Z and Corner Finding Touch Plate for setting the tool height on my Avid Pro4848 router table and it works great. That machine uses the Avid 3hp air cooled spindle motor with...

    Gary - will this be a software update/patch for existing CNC12 users, or a new updated version of CNC12? What is the upgrade cost for existing CNC12 users?
    Thanks,

    The nice thing about this one is that the seller included the spindle, vfd (pre-programmed), tool holders/collets, tool forks, spindle mount, air regulator, solenoid valve, wiring, etc. Pretty much...

    Brian - I found a copy of the Ebay listing for the ATC I purchased. Bobby Milam bought his from the same seller. I don't know if this seller is still active on Ebay and I couldn't find him using an...

    Hi Brian,
    I ordered from the same Ebay seller as Bobby Milam did around 3 years ago. Here is the thread where I had asked Bobby for detail on his ATC spindle.

    Hi Brian,
    I would say at least 25 to 30 lbs. It is much heavier than the 3 HP air cooled spindle I have on my first CNC Router Parts (Avid) router table. It is ATC water cooled about 4 hp.
    Uses...

    I added an ATC spindle to one of my Avid tables several years ago. It uses tool holders that drop out with the push of a button. Cost was around $2000 on Ebay.

    Were you just doing these for practice then, and not to be actually installed onto an aircraft?

    Andrew - I have used Deepnest (or attempted to use it) on several occasions with poor results. It is sort of "hit-or-miss". It seems to work sometimes when inputting files in svg format, but other...
