To those who will be upgrading your spindles to 80mm, I’d be interested in buying an additional 65mm spindle mount to add to my machine. I cannot get one from 1F, and it seems like there may be quite a few of them laying around in the near future. Please let me know if anyone is interested in selling one that they’re no longer using. Thank you.
So you would run two spindles at the same time?
I’d just have 2 clamps on my 65mm spindle. It’s quite long and due to interference with the z stepper I’m forced to mount the clamp awkwardly high on the spindle. I’d like to put an additional clamp and guide bearings on my z slider underneath the existing one.
That is a great idea. I have a 65 mm clamp but it is the very basic one that comes with a spindle I’m sure you have one as well
If I do get the 80 I will contact you.
Thanks Dave, we’ll see how it all plays out.
I’ve got a 65mm mount if you still need one PM me.
