Good for both manual and CNC operation
Use small cutters at the appropriate cutting speeds
This is a simple and effective enhancement to the X2 mini mill that allows the attachment of a Proxxon IB/E professional grinder for use as a high speed spindle. This product extends the capabilities of the X2 by allowing small diameter cutters to be used at their recommended rotational speed for maximum material removal and life.
Use this for fine engraving work, mechanical circuit board etching, jewelry wax machining, and highly detailed wood carving.
This kit includes the Proxxon Professional grinder IB/E and the parts required to mount it as a second high-speed spindle on your mini mill.
Chris' Tips This kit uses the Proxxon Professions Rotary Tool IB/E. It's a professional-grade tool rated for continuous duty, so it is good for this application. Hobby-type hand grinders won't last long in this sort of application.
The high speed spindle mounts to the left of the mill head. This requires you to relocate the control box. We recommend you put it on the front of the mill head. You can do this without detaching any of the wires.
Here is a picture of the high speed spindle mounted on a mini mill.
