I ordered my SO3 XXL with the DeWalt router from Carbide. I also ordered a SuperPID which is currently wending its way from Australia. But I have never been a big fan of Dewalt, and have my (possibly unfounded) doubts that the 611 is going to be super accurate. I’ve been reading the “Spindle Earthing” thread and that inspired me to go shopping for spindle alternatives.
I found one that interests me ( http://amazon.com/1-5KW-Cooled-Spindle-Variable-Frequency/dp/B010P66BX8?ie=UTF8&redirect=true&ref_=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza ) but it weighs about twice what the DeWalt weighs - 9.37 pounds.
Is that too much weight for my machine?
Any thoughts or comments on this choice? I noticed on the other thread it appeared the spindle was water cooled - would I be making a mistake to go with an air cooled unit? I hoped to avoid the extra complications of maintaing a water cooled setup.
Incidentally, for you VFD spindle guys, I have the manual for this unit if you want a copy, just let me know.
