Kress High Speed Spindles

Created by: Administrator, Last modification: 16 Jan 2021 (16:03 UTC) by Lester Caine

With the take over of Kress by AMB, prices have changed again, and the current exchange rate does not help with keeping a competitive price, so we have decided to stop stocking the spindles, and just keep stock of consumables such as collets and brushes for quicker local deliver. DamenCNC use UPS for delivery and so it's only an extra day to get the kit from Holland anyway.. FM530 FM800 FM1050 User Manual

In addition to a more accessible speed control, the business end also includes a spindle lock to remove the need for juggling two spanners to tighten and loosen the collet. Although you still need three hands to hold the cutter, spindle lock and collet spanner. The new unit still uses the same collets, which while a little more difficult to extract from the nut, provide an accurate location with negligible run-out. We will be supplying the unit with an 8mm collet, which is inculded as standard. 1/4", 6mm and 3mm collets are also available along with additional clamping nuts so that you can leave the collet and nut assembled for easier tool changes. Notes on tightening the collets are provided here.

Follow this link for notes on replacing the brushes
Keep as a pair as one brush contains a sprung insert which lifts the brush when worn down to the maximum level. When a spindle stops after a lot of use it is normally that the brusjes have warn down to their maximum safe level. Removing the insert and continuing will invaldate the warranty.
