Tormach Fab Lab: How to use a Companion Horizontal Spindle

  You can set up a companion spindle with our Horizontal Spindle Arm Mount for milling in the XZ (G18) or YZ (G19) plane.  This can be a great technique for doing light milling on the end of a very long workpiece.  In this episode of Tormach Fab Lab, Mike C. demonstrates how to get this setup right.   [youtube]http://youtu.be/0oBlsirN4t8[/youtube]   You can now also model this setup in SprutCAM by taking advantage of the brand new Tormach PCNC machine definitions in SputCAM 8.  Here's a video that shows how to get that started as well.   [youtube]http://youtu.be/r8l99stgL8s[/youtube]   Want to try this out for yourself?  We've got the Kress High Speed Spindle and all of the mounting clamps and brackets for sale here: Tormach eStore - Companion Spindles More Tormach Fab Lab Videos:
