    Struggling to see how ballscrews could be considered a lot of work...compared to making an ATC spindle a rotating nut mount is a doddle. Please see what I posted here:

    Let me cure your struggle for you... How much will you charge me for two of those units - steppers you designed and built.

    No brainer to me rotating ballnut every time at this length.!!

    And yes I'm up for a bulk buy ATC if it's 12K rpm area. Would prefer BT40 rather than BT30 has the holders tend to be cheaper(Approx 10 less each holder, 10 tools 100 big saving.) more available and allow larger capacity but I can live with BT30 if need be.!

    Well ive hunted and hunted and 10k is as fast as i can find and to be fair 6k was enough for me so if i settle for 10k i wont be going too far wrong. in fact im not sure i will ever use the extra anyhow, but that will mean the bearings should last a little longer maybe..
