this hasn’t been updated in almost two months, have any production units been shipped yet?

Multiple people have received Foreman machines and one Woodworker as of yesterday, posted to the FB group.

I have received notification that that my Elite will be here on the 22nd of March. Other people have receieved their shipping notices on this link.
Elite Foreman on it's way! - #38 by Captpaul

Hello, totally new to any of this. I was going to order an Axion until I saw a you tube video from two moose designs. I like the looks of the Elite. I’m needing to know how to make sure I order the correct spindle from a third party. Also, how is the support for Onefinity since all support seems to be done via email?

Hey Eldon,

this will hardly be possible without deeply diving into the matter and a considerable amount of research. I think all who are not at once satisfied with buying crap but want to find a good solution will confirm this. There are spindles for under $100 and some for $10,000, and it’s not possible to give the answer which is the best for a certain person, and even beyond price, there is much to consider.

The first thought would mainly be, what you intend to do (hobbyist/professional) and also what do you intend to produce with your CNC machine, and also what is your budget, also regarding the rest of what you may need for your purpose.

This forum has users with different spindles. Many have cheap chinese spindles and VFDs, some a cheap spindle and a better VFD, and a few have the Mechatron HFS-8022-24-ER20Specifications and a few have a Jian-Ken spindle.

The question will also be which VFD you want to buy.

This forum is full of information about these topics. I suggest you use the search function.

The FAQ of this forum says (I highlighted its important part):

Thank you so much. What I plan on making, good question, laptop holder, and a clock. We’ll see what else comes up. My budget is good, I don’t want junk, the video I saw he had a PWC he got from I thought the VFD came with the spindle, duh, didn’t realize it didn’t until I went to the site and saw a spindle kit, or just a spindle. I am a total rookie, retired with to much time on my hands. I will definitely check out the FAQ. Thanks again

I ordered my Elite Woodworker in January and they said it would be here in June. It arrived this morning!


I guess the number of Woodworker machines ordered are significantly less than Foreman.

I ordered the Elite Journeyman first day it was available and getting it tomorrow, so says UPS.

the only question now is if i take the day off work :slight_smile:


No question at all :grinning::joy:


When did you order. I ordered the Journeyman on January 26. Anxiously awaiting my shipping notice!!

Nov 28th, so first day it was available.

Same here - ordered on first day available…
…but shipping to Europe :crossed_fingers:

Update: April 5th - delivered!!! :smiley:

Thanks! I was unaware of the first date available. I’m in Oklahoma, US. I’m thinking possibly June on our Journeyman Elite.

I got my Woodworker Elite and it came with two parts I am not familiar with, there are 2 long but small diameter thumb screws and what looks like two plastic spacers, anyone know what these are for?
Thanks, Pat
