Sherline/A2ZCNC mill spindle retrofit

So, after a lengthy battle with the State of Maryland regarding taxes, they finally sent me money back for 2010...

With said "found" money I purchased one of those "cheap Chinese" spindles to replace the one on my Sherline. The upgrade takes my machine from .06 kw to 1.5 kw and from 10,000 rpm (theoretical) to 24,000 rpm (also theoretical)

I am currently working on the second half of the spindle mounting brackets. Unfortunately, the phone ate all of the video I shot of the mounts being machined I will take more video of the clamps being made.

I will get pictures later tonight.

Going to try to get video of the machine cutting the clamps tonight... Hopefully the camera/phone won't eat the video this time.

Then off to Redstar99 for video editing and uploading.

ER-16 spindle, or the goofy older Taig style? I have the older style and didn't realize it until I ordered a ER-16 set. Oh well, there is an ER-16 option for mine if I ever go that route.

The next step is to get the controller to talk to the VFD. U have to acquire a 220v breaker and install a new circuit into the shop. Then get the RS485 to talk to the VFD. Finally I have to decide if I plan to update the controller from EMC2 v2.4.6 to v2.5.2 This will make all the difference in what program I will need to use to get the controller to control the speed and direction of the spindle.

I tested the new lights for the mill... They are *STUPID* bright.
