    Hi MVCat,

    Any pics yet? what kind of mill is it? proper mill like Irvings or a router type like mine?

    Looking forward to seeing them anyway and welcome to the forum!

    Irving! thought you'd left us :)

    Impressive isn't it, only thing you could mount on that for a spindle is a tank engine :)

    Never ceases to amaze me what people build in their sheds. Best hobby I ever got into.

    NICE JOB MVCAT!

    Thanks for all your positive feedbacks.In the matter of the spindle,I'm not going to use anything large in first setup,one dc motor 200w3350rpm and a spindle I made myself.Spindle housing of steel with small head(one collet diameter;have few pieces of these,3,4,5,6,8 holes),I have some angular bearings(7201C),and I think it will be good for the first run.Later,I have in mind spindle with morse 3,ER20 collet chuck,which I also plan to do myself,and servo motor with VFD.

    Jeff, not yet... just pressures of work and going through the pain of a new kitchen and bathroom thats already 4 weeks overrunning, so little time for hobbies!
