    Default Help. Need spindle MT3 re-grinding u.k.

    Hi people. Crashed the X2 and damaged the spindle MT3 taper. Getting 0.1mm+ run-out
    Anyone in the u.k. know who can re-grind it or whatever you do to make it perfectly round again?
    It's the older 350w model X2 part no. 79.
    I can find a R8 one but was told it won't work with the MT3 casting, can't find a MT3 version anywhere.

    Not cheap to ship to u.k. jalessi

    If I have no luck with Cromwell tools where I got the machine from I'll have to look at my options.
    Told Cromwell "if they can't provide parts support for their machines they shouldn't be selling them!".
    Left it with them to look into for now and see what they say when they ring on Monday.

    Dazp,

    It appears as if you are crying and no one is listening.
    A priority mail international® medium flat rate box cost $66.50 to the U.K.
    A complete brand new spindle with casting from L.M.S. cost is $119.95, with shipping the total cost is only $186.45

    If you think for a moment a spindle regrind will cost less than $200.00 you may be fooling yourself however Y.M.M.V.

    Have a most awesome weekend!

    O.k. So after a bit of research I found 4 different u.k. places that look like they sell the same machine under different brands.
    All the manuals and part keys are identical.

    Osaki OSA2715500K (the one I have)
    Sealey SM2502
    Clarke CMD300
    Draper OPDRA34023

    Then you have the usual Sieg X2, Grizzly G8689, Harbor freight and so forth.

    Sealey and Clarke got back to me with the spindle in stock.
    Ordered one from Sealey and some AC type bearings from ebay.
    Lets hope it all fits.

    So far though all the upgrade bits I've purchased for the X2 have been a straight fit onto the Osaki from Cromwel tools.

    Daz.

    WTH?
    Sealey sent me a R8 spindle?
    Sealey don't even issue a R8 machine.

    For Christ sake.
