This is my conversion of a Amadeal AMA 25LV Mill
Strip down remove the spindle motor and electronics,there is to be a more powerful spindle motor fitted
Motor and electronics removed
Spindle head removed

Clean out gear box and remove gears as these will be no good for the new motor they are plastic and would not take the strain

Next remove spindle machine an extender for the new spindle drive,the gear you see is also to be machined for the drive of the spindle

Extender now welded to the gear chain bearing fitted ready for the housing


Spindle Head back on but at this pint i find out the spindle wont turn (ouch ) so strip down to find the problem i had drifted the spindle two far in and locked up the bearings so drift it out 1/32 fitted it back and all is well always make sure the bearings turn before assembling not like me im always in a hurry and this is what happens

Onto the lathe to machine the adapter for the motor i had intended to direct drive the spindle by this adapter but then i read that the Colett must have the long bolt that gos throw the spindle to hold the Colett i was hoping the colett would stay in place by just knocking it into the taper, so after machining i had to go back to my original plan that is to gear drive it and that is where i am at the moment, gear machined and connecter partly re machined for the spindle.

Next up date next week i hope

Thanks for looking

Hi Stuart,

I appreciate this thread is quite old but wondered if you had anymore updates on your build?

I recently bought the same AMA25LV and I am in the process of converting the mill to cnc.

I'm also starting a conversion on a AMA25 as well.... Any pics and information would be great. Looks good so far
