View Full Version : Spindle Motor Recommendation.

21-11-2013, 11:15 AM
Hello all,

I am at the point where I need to buy a spindle motor for my CNC router project.

I bought the linear rails and ball screws from Chai and wasn't impressed by the experience.
The packing was poor and one of the rails was quite badly bent. He will not ship a replacement unless I buy more stuff
which to me is throwing good money after bad. So this has left me slightly sceptical about going down the Chinese route again.

I have seen the following on Arc Euro Trade's site:

ER20 High Speed Spindle - 1.1kW (1.48HP) - 24000rpm

High Speed Spindles, Motors & Inverters - Arc Euro Trade (http://www.arceurotrade.co.uk/Catalogue/High-Speed-Spindles-Motors-Inverters)

Has anyone out there bought this particular motor and would they do it again?

Thanks in advance for any help on this.
