Kia ora everyone,

I recently brought a flogged GL-45 mill which i am currently converting to CNC. It has had about 10 years of work out of an engineering firm, so fair to say the gearbox is tired and quill is a little sloppy. I was going to just replace the bearings and leave it be, but now im thinking i may as well upgrade it.

I want to remove the gears and just belt drive the quill instead. I want to try aim for 3k RPM.

What motors have people run on their RF-45 or RF-45 clones? Any links to where i could buy one would be even better!

Cheers Team!
