    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

    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.

    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
