These are great spindles for CNC routers like the Shapeoko. The spindles are very quiet and smooth-running. The spindles have an ER11 collet that firmly grips the bits and have very low run-out. It is a standard collet that can be used with multiple bit sizes. It comes with a collet for 1/8" diameter bits.
Note: The collet is tightened using standard 13mm and 17mm wrenches. These do not come with this item.
You will need a DC power supply to run these spindles.
Note: The spindle has a current spike at turn on that can cause some power supplies to go into current protection mode. Using the speed controller helps prevent this. Using the AC connection to switch on the motor often causes the current protection issue. The problem can be reset by removing power from the power supply for about 10 seconds.
Note: This spindle is not compatible with Carvey®. If you need a replacement spindle for your Carvey®, please contact our support teamfor help.

We’ve gone far beyond the machine to craft a complete X-Carve experience.
Instructions designed not just to build it, but to learn how the X-Carve works. Material to get you started for your very first carve. And a community of makers at every skill level to provide support and inspiration along the way.
Our free Easel software makes 3D carving accessible to everyone.
Use Image Trace to import any image you want to carve. Draw from scratch using the Pen Tool. Easel’s also compatible with leading design software packages, including Fusion 360, MeshCAM, and Vectric’s V-Carve.
We’re seeing new projects created by the vibrant Inventables community each and every day. Your carving journey may start with engraving, but from there the possibilities are endless.
From toys and guitars, to furniture and even quadcopters, our free Easel software makes it easy to design your own project or apply your personal touch to remake one from our growing gallery.
The X-Controller is included with X-Carve. It features four powerful, four-amp stepper drivers and a heat sink to support long, accurate and precise carves. Encased to keep dust out. Ports to keep wires in. And an emergency stop button in case you need it.
Additionally, carve more consistently with a new wider gantry, featuring thicker walls and less ribs. And benefit from the combination of locking hardware, molded belt clips, and permanent pulleys.
