Do you have to override the ShopBot factory programming to get the spindle to run at those low rpm's? (If I recall, I think the lowest rpm I can set is 5K)
ShopBot Support was wondering the same thing. As it turns out I'm not getting 300 anyway, I just enter a speed of 300 in VCarve and the Variable Speed Drive, Yasikawa 1000, on my ShopBot outputs 4260rpm. So I merely assumed it was running 300 but no, it's 4260, a somewhat arbitrary number that the drive comes up with somehow as a compromise between my 300rpm input and what is "supposed" to be the slowest, which SB told me is set at 6000.
So I'll just have to work with that.
