    Hi All,

    I'm in the process of getting the parts together for my Ox, I'm interested in what spindles/routers everyone else is using/planning on using on their machines?

    I'd like to keep the noise level down as the machine will be in a garage attached to my house so I'm moving towards a Chinese spindle at the moment - probably a 1.5kw air cooled unit as this is the same cost, diameter (65mm) and weight (4.8kg) as the 0.8kw unit.

    One concern I have is weight, with the mount I'll probably be looking at ~5kg on the Z. (I'm going with a nema 23 so this should handle this, I'm more concerned with flex.)

    Is anyone else running a similar setup to this with any success?

    Cheers,
    Chris

    +1 for Chtis Laidlaw mounts. My DW618 and a laser head are sitting in one

    The mount does look pretty purposeful, I'll have a think about those when I'm a little further along.

    I couldn't go with the 611 router as they're 110v and we're 240v over here, they may be called something different over here another make/model is an option though the price is a big draw given the power of a router.

    EDIT
    It looks like there is a 240v version of the dewalt 611 here called the D26200-GB which sells for around £150, not as cheap as you guys but not too over the top.

    Yes 1972, and that's been superseded by the D26204
    Lot more money though.
