Kress 1050

Post by Temmink » Sun Sep 02, 2012 3:03 pm

I'm looking for an upgrade for my spindle on my 'stock' shapeOko. It's just to light.

And I came across this one: http://www.damencnc.com/en/tools/kress/ ... ling-motor

It's 1.7 kg and I'm not sure if this is to heavy for my shapeOko.
It has the following specifications:

- MAXX-Power 1050 Watt motor
- Slim and ergonomically-designed housing
- Full wave electronics for constant performance and speed
- Soft start-up and starting current limitation
- Special winding protection for the motor against dust and material particles
- Motor flange made of steel with double bearing for higher milling performance (43mm)
- Spindle lock for easy milling tool changes
- Electronic overload protection prevents overheat of the motor
- Carbon brush switch-off to protect the motor
- Able to gear bending waves
- 4 metre rubber mains cable with patented quick-action lock.
- 8mm collet included with delivery

What about the do's and dont's about this one?

That looks like a really nice tool.
The DW660 is about the same weight so I wouldn't worry about it being to heavy.
The price is reasonable and the selection of collets is great.
I think that you would be really happy with that tool.

Wow, the machine performs excellent!

I just bought the Kress 1050-1 and It makes a hugh difference.
Nice clean cuts. Fast and powerfull.

Even the 1.7 kg is no problem for the Z-axis.

Huge difference compared to what? I'd expect it to be only marginally better than a DW660, or am I wrong?

Hi Cvolnescu,

Compared to my stock dremel look-a-like tool which came with my inventables kit!

I don't know the specs about the dw660, but:

- Is has 1050 Watt input and more than 600 watt output.
- Soft start-up and start current limitation
- Armoured motor winding to protect against dust and particles
- Stainless steel motor flange with double bearing for higher milling performance
- Electronic overload protection prevents the motor from overheating
- Carbon cut-off brushes for motor protection
- concentricity of the spindle based on the collor manually measured < 0,096 mm

- It has special electronics for constant speed and load.
- RPM between 5000-25000.

And a lot of different Collet possible:
Ø 3 mm collet
Ø 3,175 mm collet
Ø 4 mm collet
Ø 6 mm collet
Ø 6,35 mm collet
Ø 8 mm collet

I'm even able to get custom-made Collets from a local company here, which extend the collet range with the following:

2.00 mm
3/32 Inch (2.38mm)
5.00 mm
1/4 inch (6.35mm)

Thank you. I already bought a DW660 and a Proxxon Micromot 50, so I'm not buying any more spindles until I build my ShapeOko! But it does sound very good, better than the DeWalt.

I was looking at this guy but as far as I know you can't get this in a 120V for North America.

Mh, I'm not sure, because I know they have a USA version of the Kress 800. So I guess they have it also for the kress 1050-1.

Just looked at the price on that thing. It is $200.00 when converted to US dollars!
You can almost buy four DW660s for that price.
Though it does look like you get what you pay for.
I don't think that you would ever notice the extra precision.
