Good going there...I like the picture in post#4...on the pants the words FATAL....the person welding with bare feet....now THAT is maybe not fatal, but could be painful sometimes...

Are you sure you have enough space for the machine next to the house....when you have 2 x X-axis steppers hanging on there will it fit ?

Vladimir,

I like your Mill opereator. She looks like a good worker. She needs a stool so she can easily work on the Mill.

I thought I didn't have much space. Can you move around on each side with the motors on?

Are you going to run it at normal speed, or are you going to push its speed up with a Variable Frequency Drive?

That is very interesting! Have you guys tried this before? What about the bearings? Can the rotor survive the centrifugal force? (Podemos sobreviver o rotor da força centrífuga?)

Kobus, a "spindle" is no more than a standard 3-phase motor with better bearings and a smaller diameter (longer length) rotor to stop it from flying apart at high speed.

Yes, I use it on my first router machine about two years, sometimes change the bearings by better quality.
it is a Siemens standard 3-phase motor 1HP 3420 rpm.

the 1/2 HP "spindle" in action.

Thanks for the info Vladimir...looks like you are an old hand at this CNC thing.
Two more things..
1..did you put thread on the motor shaft ? or how did you fix your chuck ?
2.. How many millimeters / inches is that motor in diameter ?

Looked at your movie...what a sweet sound.

Hi Vladimir,
Can you give a plan for the Z axis ? Or a list with material you used to build the Z axis ?

Thank you,
