Optimal rotary table and boring head for taig micro mill?

TAIG Activity on CNCzone - Thu, 01/11/2018 - 07:30
Hi/

Please, help to choose a quality rotary table. I like the 4" Shars. But he weighs 20 pounds (10kg). I'm afraid to damage the machine. Somebody uses such a heavy table? Or can somebody advise some sort of quality table (grizzly or another brand)? Sherlain don't want - too expensive for its capabilities.

Shars table for example - 4'' Horizontal and Vertical Rotary Table

And about choose a boring head. Has anyone seen the variant with mounting thread directly to the thread of the spindle ER16? I don't know inch analog thread size ER16. But the metric thread size - 22x1,5.

Such a design a boring head as this - 2" High Precision Boring Head

Thanks in advance for your help.

Newbie TAIG vs Pocket NC

Hi,
Sorry if I'm asking a stupid question.
I'd like to start my own rapid prototyping/small parts business, and I was realy excited about Pocket NC 5 axis machine, but today I found that TAIG CNC mill and lathe and they just look way more professional.
Is it worth going for 5 axes in Pocket NC, which is, actually, an expensive hobby grade machine with very small working volume, or stay with 4 axes and buy TAIG?

WTT ER32 headstock for 3/4-16 headstock

TAIG Activity on CNCzone - Thu, 10/19/2017 - 00:37
I have a brand new BB6 ER32 spindle. I thought that there was an internal stop for pseudo quick tool changes, but it looks like I was mistaken. It looks like what I really need is the old style 3/4-16 headstock with ER16 adapters or solid tool holders. If anyone with an old style spindle and a couple tool holders is looking to upgrade to ER32, I'd be thrilled to trade. If you have enough tool holders, I'd even be willing to throw in some of my Maritool ER32 collets as well.
