  • Made a mounting plate

    Spent more time cleaning the dried up grease on the faceplate. First time using it. Bored out the recess for the new spindle motor on my Taig mill. The curved slot and bolt holes were done on the big mill of course.

      3phase, driven by a VFD which is controlled by the Acorn. It's only a 1/3hp motor!!!

        Hey RB, that looks like a lotta mass hanging off a (what looks like) 1/4" plate and a couple bolt-on brackets? Plus, the motor mass is a long way up from the mount. I can see that motor turning into a blur of vibration at certain RPM's. Can you rig a brace of some sort at the top of the motor? (Just tryin' to help.)

          Going to wire up the VFD today and see what I am dealing with. The motor is only 18 lbs.

            The mill table is only around 18 lbs... the machine weight wont absorb weight hanging off it easily..

              I have an aftermarket weldment frame that is much larger than a stock Taig, and an aftermarket spindle with an R8 spindle for TTS tooling. This ain't your typical Taig.

                  The most enjoyable part of owning machining or any other tools is, remodeling them to do what YOU want them to do. Great looking modification.
