I want to Upgrade to a spindle

There are dedicated mounts that one can buy, but I do believe people have had good success with making a shim or two out of their favorite aluminum beverage can.

Link to said mount you can buy?

check aliexpress. I recently bought a 82mm mount for $10 and its prefect.

I literally Googled “x-carve spindle mount for makita” …

If you want to Buy…

If you want to 3D Print…

If you want to machine it…

Here’s a thread that might have the first one as Fusion360 files…

Here’s one at Carbide3D; they tend to use the Makita (or their clone) for the standard Shapeoko’s, but you would have to figure out mounting.

I found this guy on etsy. He has a bunch of cool products on there you guys should look at. Vinyl drag and permanent marker drag, sign holder for your z axis. Anyway, this sleeve is on there too!
