  1. Ah yes...if you have a VFD/Inverter rated motor... mine is c1998 1.5kW (2hp) 3-phase 1400. it'll run ok at 1600-1700... i wouldnt like to take it to higher than that... so geared up 1:2 it'll give me 3000 - 3500 at the spindle...., maybe a tad more....

    all that is some good info guys thanks for all of it

    now i bought some ally plate today is it a good price?

    80mm x 247mm x 12mm Aluminium Plate / Sheet 1 4.75 GBP 4.75 GBP
    103mm x 227mm x 10mm Aluminium Plate / Sheet 1 4.95 GBP 4.95 GBP
    125mm x 185mm x 10mm Aluminium Plate / Sheet 1 4.50 GBP 4.50 GBP
    69mm x 481mm x 10mm Aluminium Plate / Sheet 1 6.50 GBP 6.50 GBP
    110mm x 540mm x 6mm Aluminium Plate / Sheet 1 6.50 GBP 6.50 GBP

    Subtotal: 27.20 GBP + 7.06 GBP Postage & Packing

    i want to use it to mount the motors on.

  3. I usually reckon anything better for Aluminum than about 7/kg is a good price... that first piece is 0.65kg, so 4.56 would be a good price... overall you got 3.82kg Aly for 27.20, my guide price would have been 26.77. You paid slightly over the odds on the smaller offcuts and did slightly better on the larger ones... overall, not bad.

    3 holes around a circle 35mm apart if that helps what is the circumference ?

    Erm, surely that's just 35*3 = 105mm? I've probably got a different end of the stick...
