New toy... Water Cooled High Speed Spindle

Picked up this spindle yesterday. Should be able to handle my milling requirement... overkill for the Sherline but can be used later should I decide to replace the Sherline. Need to make the mounting as well as the water circulation system...

Spindle Spec: 800W, 150V max, 400Hz max, 24000rpm
Inverter Spec: 1.5kW, frequency upto 1.5kHz, voltage upto 400V (3-phase)

Hello there,
I bought the spindle locally here in Malaysia.. got it at a bargain because the seller wasn't sure the actual cost... I paid around USD400 for the spindle AND the VFD... still smiling everytime I recall the memory... :-)

The spindle is exactly the same at the one sold at kelinginc.com. My model is the same spec as KL-800 Milling Spindle. More details at http://www.kelinginc.net/CNCSpindleandController.html

The spindle is very quiet and has no noticeable runout (I don't have the tool to properly measure the runout). My test PCB milling went perfectly okay.

Hope this helps.

I got it from EH Technology

The spindle is not their standard product but you may want to talk to Eric and check what he can do for you.

Thanks Bro, Hope I still can get it for USD400.

He he...

Highly unlikely... the VFD alone would cost around that... :-)

Mine was cheap because it was 'spares' for a router unit for another client of Eric. After a long while sitting in his office, he decided to offload it and make some money. I think he had no idea how much it really worth... I was lucky...
