My parts arrived a few days ago (thanks Ryan), so looking for a good spindle to use while I wait for my conduit to arrive.
I’m happy to spend a bit more money than normal on the spindle if it means I’ll get better results or have a wider range of materials to play with.
This one from Amazon seems pretty nice:
Is this massively overkill for MPCNC? What are the main benefits from getting a more powerful spindle?

I’d worry about the weight.September 18, 2016 at 8:39 am #17942
I would look for something in the 300-800W range. 3000W is like trying to water your house plant with a fire hose, it might work but it is far from ideal.September 18, 2016 at 8:55 am #17947
Thanks for the advice!
I think I’ll probably go for this one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Kress-1050W-Milling-Electronic-Control/dp/B00DOTGRRY/
It’s a bit higher powered, but I’ve had some good recommendations.September 18, 2016 at 9:06 am #17948
Still pretty big But I have read nothing but good things about kress. We can’t get them in the US but I wish we could!September 19, 2016 at 1:32 am #17973
I wish I could get the dewalt in Europe but that’s only because of the low price.
That said a Kress will probably last longer as it was designed for running long periods on a CNC machine and its well worth the money.
A Kress 530 FM would be plenty powerful enough for a MPCNC.
