I was milling a piece of material this afternoon, and my spindle suddenly stopped spinning, broke my #112 cutter and also seems to have put my spindle out of order. My feeds and speeds were pretty normal and I have run the same job a few times with no issues.
The motor belt (?) seems to be pretty loose…I’m thinking this might be the issue? I’ve tried to turn the spindle on with Carbide motion…but it just stutters around a couple times and then stops.
Here is a video of the spindle in it’s current state: https://vimeo.com/194571598
