Kress High Speed Spindles
Now that we have got round the problems of translating the Kress sales literature, the replacement high speed spindle IS an 800FME. This is 800W at 25000 RPM with a range from 10000 RPM to 30000 RPM. Somewhat more powerful and higher speed than the existing unit. The main change to all of the new machines is a switch to 240V working, so the new spindle does not require a higher power transformer to run it.
In addition to a more accessible speed control, the business end also includes a spindle lock to remove the need for juggling two spanners to tighten and loosen the collet. Although you still need three hands to hold the cutter, spindle lock and collet spanner. The new unit still uses the same collets, which while a little more difficult to extract from the nut, provide an accurate location with negligible run-out. We will be supplying the unit with an 8mm collet, which is inculded as standard. 1/4", 6mm and 3mm collets are also available along with additional clamping nuts so that you can leave the collet and nut assembled for easier tool changes. Notes on tightening the collets are provided here.

Follow this link for notes on replacing the brushes
Keep as a pair as one brush contains a sprung insert which lifts the brush when worn down to the maximum level. When a spindle stops after a lot of use it is normally that the brusjes have warn down to their maximum safe level. Removing the insert and continuing will invaldate the warranty.
