      Its 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).

      No affiliation.
      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.

      Thanks Gerry
      Can you home me into RPG web site.
      tried various searches but only come up with Games.
      Wondering if they have a belt drive for my Weiss,(Real bull I think) nothing wrong with the machine after 7 years,but
      always trying to quieten things down.My  Weiss is used almost everyday and I've never taken the top off the machine,other than grease the gears.she is a real beauty.
