I’ve been toying with the idea of mounting a more powerful CNC spindle. I would like to do some aluminum milling, in addition to polycarbonate. which is why I need better and more controllable spindle. Something like:
I would set the RPM manually, and just use the snapmaker to move it around. As long as the CNC head is plugged in (but not mounted), this shouldn’t be an issue, right? I’m not super well versed in CNC, so I would love to get some input. Is the SM even sturdy enough to accommodate a heftier spindle? Is this a good idea or not?
