|Thread: Proxxon mf70 spindel/motor coupling?, any good idears?|
i am going to install a new spindel motor in my little Proxxon mf70 mill, instead of the excisting Proxxon motor, since i think it makes too much noise.
With regards to the coubling between the motor axel and the spindel, are there somebody that has a good idear how that could be made, it is very difficult to get a screwdriver sideways down in the motor housing, and i do not like the plastic/rubber solution Proxxon have done?
Anyone have a smart motor/spindel solution for the Proxxon mf70?
|Thread: What collet chuck dimentions for s Sieg SX2?|
Thank you for your very informative text.
I will for sure buy from the official Danish rep, Globaltools, their prices are ok, and then i have service and support close to.
Stuart an Journeyman, great, i will for sure look at what you suggest.
I actuallly do know what i want, i want a hobby mill for lighter milling in alluminium that i maybe can later on convert into a cnc machine.
Right now i have a small Proxxon MF70 mill, that i have converted into cnc, running Estelcam, using Onshape CAD, but i wanta larger mill to be able to mill nicely in alluminium.
I will most proberly want to buy the Sieg X2 from the danish dealer, Globaltools.dk, but my reason for asking the spindel thing was that i planned to buy the collets and collet chuk from ea Banggood in advance, as a full set an save some bucks, because i will first buy the machine later.
Again thanks to all answers, also to the one that feel unnecessary sarcasm and irony helps to transfer knowlege!
ok, thank you very much.
Hello Martin and all,
Thank you so much for taking your time to write so much goos information to me, it is really helpfull.
I know i am a bit slow.., but one last question, if i choose for example to buy a Sieg x2 super (i can get i for around 1000 EUR here in denmark) will it then automatecially come with a MT3 spindle fit (sorry for my wrong wording), or do Sieg X2 mills comes with different fit for collet chucks depending of country, and maybe dealer?
in other words, if i just look for MT3 collet chuks, will i then be sure i fit the Sieg X2 super i want to buy?
Again, thank you very much for all your help.
First of all, thank you very much for taking your time to guide me in this, very much apriciated.
I am new to this, and what confuses me is all the different abberviations used in the world of cnc, and milling chucks.
MT3, r8, ER25, and others.......is there a explanation on all these somewhere do you think, what they mean, and also......some collets are measured in inc other in mm, is there converter adabters from inch collets to mm collets?
By the way, i live in Denmark.
again, thank you very much for your help.
I plan to buy a Sieg SX2 mill, but normally i comes with a drill chuck, and it is not good for milling, i heard
