Stepcraft 600 with Kress 1050 wurde erstellt von bergamasco
Good afternoon,
I bought a used stepcraft 600 (so I do not know if v1 or v2) and in parallel a Kress 1050 FM1 spindle.
Unfortunately, when I tried to mount the spindle in the tool holder, I discovered that it is not possible because the spindle body interferes with the stepcraft structure.
The tool holder length is 134 mm. A couple of millimiters more and the problem would be solved.
Anyone had the same problem? In case the version I have is V1, the toolholder for V2 would solve?
Thanks in advance for any suggestion.
Regards,
Alessandro

Allesandro,

you bought a serie 1 stepcraft.
your 600 has a toolholder plate witch is 10mm thick and a little shorter than the version 2 plate.
So order a new toolholder plate version 2 at Stepcraft and replace it with yours, than all will fit and work fine.

so good luck

That's exactly what I did. Upgraded to a Kress & never looked back. Originally use Dremel & Proxxon - which never were any good.
The Kress has extra bulk & rigidity & therefore produces much better results.

I bought the V2 toolholder plate and it works perfectly.
Thanks again.

Allesandro,

Iam glad that it helped you.
Hope you will have lots of pleasure with your machine, but remember you have a semi professional kress spindle but a hobby CNC-machine so be gentle with the cutting depth and axis feeds.
