I choosed the small 300W @ 48V DC-spindle that I am using on my eShapeoko CNC-router on the basis of it is supposedly low level of noise. I was hoping to be able to use the router in my apartment and low noise was therefore very important.
The obvious drawback however with this small DC-spindle is that it is very low power. It needs to be run with a low feed and shallow depth pass to be able to handle the cutting load.
I can’t use the same mount for the new Kress that I used for the old spindle. So I had to build a new one.
