    Good afternoon all

    I`m looking for some help with my Chester Champion v20 that I just bought.
    On the spindle, there should be a detent ring which is missing on mine. I can 3d print new one but I don`t know how many grooves should the ring have.
    This mill is nearly the same to a warco and many others therefore, can someone please picture or count the grooves on their mill so I can make new one?
    (Sorry, the picture rotates on its own)
    Thanks in advance.

    If it's just for a basic spindle tacho, I'd guess it would probably only have one.

    So I'd create a single slot one, and if the speed reading isn't accurate, just cut out extra slots until you find the magic number.

    On the Warco WM18 the ring (disc) has 16 holes for the dc motor speed sensor
