Bridgeport Spindle Speeder Video's
A few articles ago I described a special attachment for a standard milling machine that increased the spindle speed up to 25K RPM. I was missing one of the small cross section v-belts to make the unit run. The ordered belts came to the shop today so I put it all together and ran it for the first time in ten or twelve years. As promised there is some video footage at the end.
A nice short one of the speeder running at low speed.
A little longer one with some tachometer readings.
A run up of the speeder to twelve thousand rpm. Speed of the milling machine spindle is only at fourteen hundred rpm. A link to the original article.
