Just received an email from John at automationtechnologiesinc.com, regarding my query about an 800-watt spindle and a 110VAC VFD inverter. My question is this, will the weight of the spindle be too much for the MPCNC? I am planning on using 1" OD 316 stainless tube with a 0.065" wall, the workable size of the frame will be 24" x 36". I have already sourced the stepper motors from StepperOnline (92 oz.in, cheap enough) I will get the power supply as well as the stepper drivers there as well.
Another question, can I still use the Arduino & Ramps 1.4?
Yes, I know, this may all be a tad over-kill, but more power is better (sometimes I also know that with this CNC rig, I won’t be able to hurry things along, that is not my intentions I do believe that Ryan has a great thing going here, and I sure look forward to building a MPCNC rig. Yes I am going to have questions, lots of em :), like has anyone used Mach3, I am pretty fuzzy on the setup to get this all working, so far I have just done a lot of reading, and getting more confused all the time :)Why do I want to go with a spindle you ask? Because I really want to have some kind of control over the noise.
