Thread: Identifying a carvetight spindle

  1. #1

    Default Identifying a carvetight spindle

    I can't remember where I read it...but the "newer" machines already have the CarveTight spindle. Is this true?

    How can I determine what "version" my machine is and if, in fact, it has the upgraded spindle?

    Thanks!!!

    I believe you have the latest and greatest.... And it should be a CarveTite. The Standard for a few years now.

    If you are using a t handle hex wrench to loosen the screw to remove the bit, you have a carvetight. If you have a quick chaange design, where the bit is in a holder that you snap into the spindle and use a wedge type tool to remove that is the older style spindle design.
