    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?

    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 :)
