I've got a line on an RF-30 at what seems like a decent price. Went and checked it out the other day, and I've been doing some research on that line of machine from various vendors.
One thing I ran across from a couple different sources is that the motor causes vibration that results in only fair finish quality for some types of cuts. One thing I'ld seen mentioned a couple times was using link belts instead of v-belts. Since both of my drill presses and my one small manual mill all use v-belts I was wondering if I could benefit on them from changing over to link belts?
Additionally since I know absolutely nothing about link belts how do you order them? By size like a V belt, or can you just order a bunch of it and make belts to length as needed?
My other thought was, if the right deal comes along would these machines experience less vibration with a 3 phase motor? Maybe running a nice VFD for infinite speed control?
