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?
