    Default New Information about the CarveTight Spindle


    0 Not allowed!
    LHR continues to improve our products, making something that is already great...even better.

    We already know the CarveTight Spindle is a great improvement over the old-style Quick Chuck, but now, by accident first, and then with further experimentation, we have discovered how to make the CarveTight Spindle have EVEN LESS VIBRATION, which also means EVEN LESS NOISE!!!

    All CarveTight Spindles shipped from LHR Technologies, whether sold by themselves, as part of the CarveTight Service Upgrade package or sold in New Version C Machines will now have a slightly longer screw to hold the bit in place and two washers on them. Any machines that may have already been shipped to a distributor will not have these.

    NOW THE REALLY GOOD NEWS FOR ALL OF YOU THAT ALREADY HAVE A CARVETIGHT:
    You can go to your local box store and make these changes to your CarveTight yourself! All you need to upgrade your CarveTight is the following:

    M5x20 Socket Head Cap Screw --- qty 1
    #10 Split washer --- qty 2

    Place the two washers on the longer screw. Remove the existing screw using the t-allen wrench and put the new screw with washers on your spindle.

    Now, how does that sound?!

    Well thanks Connie! I'll give it a try. I don't even really notice mine since I changed to the CT, Now the DC annoys me, but every little bit helps and less vibration should mean more reliability.

    One Question for clarification:

    M5x20 Socket Head Cap Screw --- qty 1
    #10 Split washer --- qty 2

    Split washers? As in Lock washer?
    Sometimes I'm just totally underwhelmed!

    I am trying to imagine what Lynn posted.... Can someone post a picture... So we are not talking about the 4 bearings but the chuck itself?

    The Locking Screw that holds the bit in place?

    sounds like more mass = less air displacment.
