Piranha XL Upgrade

Post by Ripper »

Hi all, I need some help regarding installing an 800w water cooled spindle on a Piranha XL. I am seriously looking at purchasing this cnc but I want to make sure it can handle the weight of this 8 lb. spindle. Could anyone tell me if the XL can handle this spindle without too much deflection in the gantry. I spoke with the NWA tech but unfortunately I was not able to get a direct answer. I would appreciate any feedback on this matter.

They are built for trim routers, which average around 3 pounds or so. No guarantees on it holding up to 8lbs
