    Hello,

    I'm new and just receive my ooznest OX cnc without a routers. I want now, buy a spindle. As the cnc will be in a bedroom, I would like to save some decibels as more as possible so I would like to buy a water cooled spindle.

    The cnc is 1.5*1.5m. I would like to mill mdf, hard wood, plexiglass and if possible, aluminium.

    I saw sometimes Huanyang coming for the spindle, is it a good manufacturer? Do you have another manufacturer to suggest?
    And also, what kind of motor, 800W, 1500 or 2200W? I could read some issue with the weight of the spindle, does the 2200w to heavy? I like the possibility to use an ER20 collet.

    I'm in Belgium, if you have some store to advise, just let me know :)

    Hi,

    I believe a 2200w spindle will be to heavy. Has the manufacturer got weight specs for each one?

    5.8kg for the 2200W, 4.4kg for the 1500W and 2.6kg for the 800W.

    What's an acceptable weight?

    Edit : I guess the weight issue is about the X axis gantry to bend?

    Hi,

    Ok they are quite heavy. I would go no larger than the 800w spindle.

    Yes it is a significant weight.

    I can easily find the 1.5 or 2.2KW :/ Not the 0.8KW.

    What could I do to avoid the gantry to bend ?

    Here is a 0.8KW Kit 110V setups are available "Here" and "Here" to if you can not use a 220V unit.

    Sorry about that, I completely skimmed over your location in your first post... A quick search on ebay.be shows a few 0.8KW options that might be worth a look..

    Hi davels.
    I noticed you mentioned that this machine is in your Bedroom. You do realise that the CNC is going to be noisy and very dusty as it works? :jawdrop:
    Have you taken this in to account? A serious need for a sound cabinet, and a good vacuum would be highly recommended, especially working with MDF! :(

    Well, it will not be in my bedroom but in a room who should be a bedroom. But it will be my bedroom next room :sleepy::blackeye:

    This is the reason why I want a water cooled spindle, less noisy. I plan to build an enclosure, but before doing it, I wait to check how noisy it is :)

    Thank you to advise me :thumbsup:

    Thx all for your feed back! I order a 2.2KW HuanYang inverter with a 0.8KW HuanJiang spindle water cooled. According to the seller, it works well. As he has 99.9% with more than 2600 orders, I believe him.

    Any advise on the bits to use for mdf and acrylic?

    Dave,

    How did the 2.2 KW spindle work? Was it too heavy or not? Have you cut any aluminum yet?

    You dont need a water cooled spindle air cooled is fine and make sure your gantry is stiff enough to received the weight of your spindle
