Spindle mount installation from the front, not from the back

(Carmo) #1

The spindle mount is installed on the Z-carriage from behind. To mount a different spindle it’s necessary to take the X/Z assembly apart, uninstall the current mount, install the other mount and put the X/Z assembly back together.

It would be nice to be able to install the spindle mount from the front, not from the back, to avoid all that hassle.

This looks like a very practical solution.

Here is another example of front installation of the spindle mount.

While it is not a full front mount, the EasyTram created by @MrBeaver lets you adjust the side to side tramming from the front without having to remove the mount or spindle.
