Thread: options for 3020 router spindle?
Hey guys. Ive not actuall taken delivery of my 2030 yet but im already thinking of upgrading some parts when it arrives.
Apart from giving it a quality rewire id also like to change the spindle for something a bit beefier.
My little proxxon mf70 mill will be made redundant upon its arrival so i was wondering if anyone has retrofitted the spindle from one of these onto a 3020? The proxxon is a quality little unit with a variable spindle speed of upto 20,000 rpm.
Im all ears.
Just looking at the specs of the 3020 and your Proxxon the 3020 has a 200W spindle and your Proxxon is a 100W spindle so you'd be downgrading power...probably upgrading quality mind ;)
Why don't you make your own spindle? I have (not used it as not built my machine yet!) so it must be fairly easy lol there are a few threads on here to guide you?Neil...
Hi Neil. Your right mate. I completely overlooked the power rating! whoops. Il have to browse a few threads to get some ideas. Not trying to turn it into a mega machine. Would just like it to be reliable mostly.
Thanks for the help.
This is Mark's thread which is what I used to do mine.
I'm going to make a smaller one for wood and engraving but for the time being when I get my machine built I'll be using my little Proxxon 50/E spindle as I'll only be cutting balsa :)Neil...
