Re: My Shapeoko build starts

Hi all, Placed an order for the 400W brushless spindle.

Re: My Shapeoko build starts

Thanks Will! 1 - NEMA 23 motors are for people who are in a hurry, or making money. OK, I've decided going NEMA 17 for now. 2 - either of those spindles should be fine --- what there is data-wise is on the wiki: http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/Spindle_Options and http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/...

Re: 400W Brushless Spindle Motor

400W Brushless Spindle Motor

Hi All, I'm planning on getting my Shapeoko very soon! (so excited) I've been looking around for a nice spindle for it.
