Hi

It's not been used yet in production. So i don't class it as second hand.
It also comes with a router mount and an extra collects, these alone at there cheapest i think will cost you 60.
thanks

Correct me if i'm wrong but the kress units come with 10 years guarantee. I think I mentioned this in the above post already.

Why not the water cooled spindle? You've seen first hand how Kress router's wont last...

i am going to get one of those next month - but i have lots of customers waiting and i need one now to atleast get me going again - i managed to get one for 136 plus vat and 8 postage

all the water cooled seem to be from china - and the ones that say they in the uk, want 100 postage - so that means they in china,..lol

You could well get it in under a week from them. I ordered a VFD from one of those sellers and it came within a few days.

If you're desperate:

Make sure you get the one with ER20 collets not smaller.

Hi well that's good for you but I am sure someone will see the benefit in not having to finance a router mount etc.

also it sounds like you might have been pushing the kress router too hard as this is the first report i've heard out of about 20 that the kress has failed on them.

the only other report i can remember was of someone who was using it to cut aluminum when kress is branded as wood router..also one of the reasons I upgraded is that without any cooling jacket its not really a good idea to have your router on for continuous periods:S

why don't you return it to Germany and inform kress of your break down?

SOLD..


So mr swinds.

anyone who can't claim the vat back on your argument would be looking at spending 165 inc shipping

So plus my collets and mount at lets say another 60 - 80.. giving your route a price tag of 225...

i would say take better care of your equipment mate.

I would say it's irrelevant since (at the time of writing) you can get a proper water cooled 2.2kW spindle intended for use on a CNC router with a full set of collets and VFD for about 250.
That will get you more power, lower runout therefore higher accuracy, bigger range of cutter diameter (0-13mm), longevity, much higher rigidity and lower noise.
To me any of one of those advantages (except noise) is enough to make up for spending 25 more.

Lot of inflated postage is actually fee avoidance , as a seller pay ebay 10% of final value but not on postage costs.

Had a few Chinese items, including 3040 mill, shipped from some fulfillment warehouse in Portsmouth, guessing they may be held in bond and pay the duty when they sell, important to note I didn`t get charged any extra duty and items arrived within few days.
