Shapeoko chewing through oak at 3000mm/min

Don’t be afraid to push your machine to make parts faster!! :slight_smile:

Looks like you have a different spindle?

That’s 118 in/min. Almost twice as fast as I usually run in MDF and Maple. I’ll have to up my feeds. :slight_smile:

What spindle is that?


#4

@MrBeaver @twforeman yeh it’s a 1.5KW 3 phase but it doesn’t matter too much at those rpms. I only have it for the high torque it has at low rpms like <10,000

I think 3/4 HP more makes a good difference at any rpm!
Nice work!
What did it take to attach the new spindle? Ray


#6

What was the step over?


#7

Haha Yeh it probably does a bit :slight_smile:

It has the same outer diameter as the Makita router so you just need the adaptor bushing!

@atrueresistance it was 4.5mm
