Chinese Spindle & VFD Setup 2016-11-16

Making sense of setting up a Chinese Spindle & VFD without the grief.

  1. Moag
    Cheapish Chinese Variable Speed Brushless Spindles and Variable Frequency Drivers or Inverters (VFDs) are common and easily available on the internet and are an attractive alternative to the cheaper trim routers often used by default on hobby CNCs... Like with most things there are pros, cons and dangers. So to save you the pitfalls, I've made a easy to follow "How to guide" in PDF format. ;) Stay Safe.

    I took delivery of my VFD & spindle today and was a bit lost with the wiring and VFD-setup. This resource had me up and running within 20 minutes. Thanks for posting this.
