I know the basics, and have built an MDF router machine and used whatever I could get hold of.
I'm now looking to build a bigger machine ... probably 4x4' possibly 8x4... to cut upto 18mm thick MDF
The info I'm after is Chinese suppliers, and their reliability/reputation ???
I'm looking to buy a water-cooled spindle from chia ...
where should I buy the controller ?
I'm located in Coventry. I hear there is a Ally channel supplier in Hinkley ? are they any good ? price ? quality ?
I'm thinking R&P from WMH Transmissions Ltd - Home
Any feedback on them ?
Rails and bearings ??? UK or Chia ? any advise where to buy from ?
Thanks all ... and please tell me if there is a better place to ask these questions :)
£227 from China + VAT or import or whatever its called.
£250 from the UK
Try Fred from bst automation, as it maybe a bit cheaper then using PayPal with chai. As for spindles, I got mine from chai when I bought my rails and such and I got charged £20 for the lot
The double vote is worth much more than 2x a single vote :)
I will look at them both
To save £20 I wouldn't bother and have piece of mind Chai will sort any issues if they arise.!!
My comment was meant more in general, hence why I didn't specify 'when buying ballscrews'. I have no problems with ordering from Chai, as his prices tend to be reasonable, however if I see something cheaper on aliexpress I'll get it as (due to the reason Eddy just mentioned) the risk is negligible and I see no reason to refuse to change supplier and miss out.
If so then agreed worth a look if enough saving but I'm a big believer in loyalty and know the value in building up a relationship with a supplier and in Chai's case this has helped me and few others in the past.!
On same note for one off builds then I can see the temptation to save the Dosh.!!
