Am in the process of getting a 2.2kw 220v spindle, but must admit I’m slightly confused regarding which kit to select. Have been looking at the different ones at https://www.aliexpress.com/store/group/2-2kw-Spindle-Kits/342739_509573279.html (assuming this is the store on Aliexpress people buy from. At least thats the ones that came out on top when just looking at the number of orders. Have no problem ordering from another store on the site, but wanted to grab as much as possible from the same store since import taxes makes it better to do one large order rather than several small ones).
- One of the white ones is listed as a “Vector inverter” and the other says VFD, so not sure what that even means as far as compatibility and performance goes (Vector vs VFD)
- One’s listed as a “New arrival” and seems to be a newer VFD, but got a bit skeptical after seeing some of the comments
- The three other black ones seems to be the one talked most about when doing some research. I was just hoping one of the above ones would be an improvement as I’ve seen some noise complaints regarding this one. Obviously if this is the best one I’ll get it and play it by ear (no pun intended ) and figure out what to do regarding the noise.
As an aside:
Thinking of running the water cooling tubes through the drag chain. Good/bad idea? If good, should I pick up a couple any of the drag chains found here (https://www.aliexpress.com/store/group/Drag-Chain/342739_512319214.html)?
Any other things the store sells that’s generally recommended to get? Planning on fetching a couple of collet sets and also some packs of collet nuts.
In advance, thanks!
