    This currently is plugged into the power supply box for my controller, can I just taop into these 3 pins and then wire some more wires to the spindle controller l, n and gnd?

    I imagine that would be fine, can't see it drawing more Amps than that plug is designed for.

    Can't see the amp rating for the IEC socket but looks like it should be fine anything over 10amp is in the zone. If it wasn't for some reason you can buy a new higher rated socket very easily on ebay for <3 but the size of those pins I'm sure that's 10amp minimum.

    A good place to skank these sockets is old PC power supplies for pikeys like me ;)

    If you didn't buy it from China the company you bought it from did ;)

  4. Again thank you very much lads, will probably have a go at finishing this wiring tomorrow night and report back :-)

    What are the two terminals on the left? Power in? If so they will go there from the PSU.

  9. Ah yes that makes sense except im not sure what wires go from the power pack to the spindle pcb. One main question though, at the moment, the power comes into the planet enclosure from the way via a kettle/pc like plug. It then goes to a switch on the front of the enclosure. It is then wired from the switch to the l, n and gnd of the enclosure power pack. If I link the L, N and gnd from here to the spindle power pack above would these cables handle it do you think or do I need to rewire in a thicker wire?

    I have also wired the cable which goes to the spindle itself wrong, I have now connected this to the terminals which are labelled motor - & +.

  10. They say motor - &+ so I think I wired these up wrong, think these are supposed to go to the actual spindle?
