About 9 months ago I posted about testing a tiny spindle motor to drive a 2 x 72. The motor is an 11 pound, 3 hp, 3 ph, 400 hz, 24,000 rpm, 220 volt, liquid cooled spindle motor. After several months of hard testing it has proven itself ready to move from the test machine to a production frame. This is the first entry level production frame with the motor mounted and drive system mounted on it. This is the same motor and drive that I have been using on the test frame. I will put it in this frame and loan it to other knife makers to run it through the paces and get their feedback on it pros and cons. It powers the belt from a creep to over 7100 sfpm with excess of power. I tested it on single pass removals up to .030" with great performance results. The frame is also unique. Not so much in its shape but in the material and construction. It is tubular aluminum welded frame with the bar inside tube clamp system that I developed. The clamp self-centers the bar when tightened and leaves no damage like a set bolt system. NO SLOP!! NO SLIP!! It will be powered up and running on this frame in about another week and I will send it to the maker for a few months of trials in his shop. If you have question feel free to ask. This motor can be seen in action on my youtube channel BigIronTV search for spindle motor videos on my channel.
