- Jul 22, 2014Its rdg tools.
Good stuff, cheap.
Similar to chronos, or arceurotrade, other good uk supplier(s).
Quality varies depending on products and pricing - from so so to very good.
RDG is a quality act.
They also sell on ebay with same name.
(If something costs 40£ its obvious to me its lighter and not as good as 3x heavier 500€ product. Thus I dont directly compare the two).
For better (also more industrial) stuff look up Chester UK.
I bought my (12x) lathe from them.
Excellent company, product, service and price.
Many products are out of most hobby peoples prices.
I am now changing my lathe to a ac bushless servo drive, with both timing belt and/or good 5-arc second planetary.
This is a true C-axis, with milling and live tools capability, inlcluding 5-axis stuff (when used with Y axis).
Most probably I will do both belt and harmonic drive.
My Ac servo is 2.5 kW continuos.
A servo setup is about 600€.
Afaik, no direct setup exists -
but just put a motor and drive of your choice and a timing belt setup on it ?
Flat belts are less noisy- after 300 rpm or so timing belts make some noise.
