Re: Next Wave CNC Shark HD3 Accuracy Problems

There is just one major drawback to the water-cooled spindle --- it is not controlled by the cnc controller box. The operator/user turns it on/off and must set the rpms after it is turned via a rotary dial knob on the inverter which controls the spindle. That is another gripe (rarely mentioned) that...

I have a chart somewhere on the rpm's versus settings for the Bosch because I have two of them one is used as a ta...

I know for a fact it does not work that way on my Earlier Shark HD3 Pro Plus Extended Bed CNC with spindle. You have to control the spindle manually -- ...
