Hey guys, it’s been a long week and I’m about to pull the trigger on my first purchases. I’m building a new machine from scratch and I want to run my list by you guys and maybe you can point out what I might be missing or what I should probably upgrade.
New Carve Kit w 4 269 oz. Steppers and Spindle mount (611)
611 1/4" and 1/8" collets, nut, adapter, and wrench
Assorted cutting bits
Dust collection system
Dewalt Vacuum DXV10P
Is there anything I’m missing?
I’m not sure about the vacuum so I’d love some suggestions in the sub- $200 range. I don’t think the model I’ve listed has the right size hose.
Also I plan on doing a lot of aluminum work, I’d really appreciate recomendations for a beefier spindle. I don’t know what size spindle I can get away with or what the limitations are in terms of rigidity or power supply.
Thanks for the help guys.
