Thread: Kress Spindle Holder
Hi, does anyone have a dimensioned drawing of a suitable holder for the kress spindle. It doesn't have to be to detailed, as I only want to use it to ensure my router design will allow the spindle to go slightly beyond the end of the bed.
Surely someone must have a 3d cad file of the kress, i need one as well!
Found one on Google Sketchup but can't export it to a format that will work in my CAD package.
I hate guessing.....!
Thanks for the input. I managed to scale a drawing that was posted on the g code section.
I have been trying to develop my design but I keep thinking that I should start from the tool and work back through the Z axis, and then the X & Y and finally the frame.
There is not much to one.
It needs a 43mm hole, some method of clamping, it also need the hole far enough out so the body of the Kress doesn't foul the Z axis and not all Kress's are the same.
I have a couple of early single speed ones and they are far bulkier than the modern 800 watt ones.
Where it fastens in relation to the Z axis as regards length sticking out depends on the design of you Z axis or will rely on a sub late or a cranked Kress bracket.
I can do a drawing and take some pics of the one I have just taken off my router if that will help you but it will have to be later as I'm off out at the moment.

Thanks John that will help.
Looks like a shiny bog-seat
JeffNothing is foolproof......to a sufficiently talented fool!
lol, cant see any mounting holes on this badboy:
Sorry a bit late but here the one I made.
5" across the bottom as a guide.
I have taken it off to run the air cooled high speed spindle to do some testing.John S -
