Thinking about the belt conv,on my mill,wifey doesn't like the noise.I have looked at the commercial one and have plans to make my own,but seems a lot of hassle getting materials etc,is there a supplier of a kit in the UK.
Well that died a death,the bits were no use as with the larger motor everything is different,had my money back on good old e-bay.
Thought I would mention it in case someone else has the same idea,I shall give my misses a pair of ear plugs untill I have the time to make something up.
Sorry for the thread bump.
I have an Einhell MBF550 which is also a 550 Watt Mini mill and I suspect similar. As of yet I haven't broken the plastic gears but I would like to do some fly cutting and from what I have read that will end in tears.
I have heard repeatedly that the kit from LMS won't fit the Einhell so I suppose I will have to make my own.
It's great to see some metric plans! Can I just ask the following:
What angle are those V pulleys and what belt was used in the conversion?
i have done the belt-drive myselft, not too hard to do, i based my desing in the LMS common design
but have to move the circuit box a little to make room for the bottom plate, doing this there is no more room for the torsion spring arm so I done the air spring mod simultaneously
I dont remember well..the slower speed was arround 2000 RPM and the higher 4000 RMPS
The belt i bougth from LMS is a Truflex 0130, the angle cant remember either, but i measure it directly from the belt in my hand and a protactor jajaja
now im planning to change the beltdrive for some other drive design that allow me to have more torque, reducing the spindle speed to ranges like hi-torque 0-500 rpm, normal-torque 0-1000 rpm and high-speed 0-2000 rpms
but thats ir more future from now
anyway Corvus how long habe you owned the Einhell mini mill?
i wish to comparate my mini mill with some other of the same kind, to see if the problems that have showed mine are common or just i got bad luck jajaj
I had tro space out the control box exactly the same as that Anko, as the plate fouled it otherwise. Here are the parts for mine in, roughly, their working position relative to each other. A very simple project really.
