    If you would have looked at the OPs profile, you would have seen that he hasn't had any activity in 7 years. And then, it was just the 2 posts here.

    A Chinese made knee mill. 40mt spindle so budget for all new tooling. Probably should order with DROs if your newbies. Hell, might as well get power feed also.

    Why single phase? Get a 3 phase motor and a 110~220 phase convertor which will also give you -25/+30 % speed control for about $100.

    You've made a lot of "assumptions".

    1. IMHO, your method of tramming sucks. I hate those types of aids and find them to me in error most of the time.

    Boy do you have an attitude for engineers. Maybe you should try it sometime. Making shit from a drawing is usually easier than designing it. Packaging equipment is the worst.

    I wouldn't call it a knurl. Hard to say without knowing what it's used for. If you're looking at having one made, it's expensive.

    420 stainles is usually heat treated, no heat treat specs.

    We don't all have your money Bill. Last I looked, a new Servo with the adaptors is north of $1K. I'd keep looking at motor shops or a working 3phase motor on ebone. But then, I'm poor.

    Rewinding a fractional HP motor can be a DIY project. We were doing in high school. Probably 8 hours work and it's not rocket surgery.

    So, you'd rather wear out a several hundred $ shell mill than a cheap end mill? Don't make sense to me.

    Nothing says you have to use a pilot. In many CNCs, you just use a spotter drill to hold center. We drilled over 2 1/2" in stainless without a pilot.
