Shapeoko 2 Compatible Spindle Mount

Post by LouisV » Sat Mar 15, 2014 5:34 pm

I bought a new 65mm 800w AC spindle for my Shapeoko 2 but had no means of mounting it. So using my less powerful DC&nbsp;spindle I cut out three aluminum spindle mounts. Each one is 1/2" thick and was cut using a 1/8" 3-flute variable helix endmill. These mounts are compatible with the stock Shapeoko 2 mounting plate and&nbsp;have a built in&nbsp;offset to allow clearance for the spindle so that it doesn\'t run into the Z-axis stepper motor plate.<br>

I want to do something like that for my 400W spindle.

Looks very nice.
