    Spindle sound issues - video

    During warm up, the spindle does not sound right at the highest RPM (24000). I thought the sounds was a much higher squeal pitch, whereas now it is much deeper and louder – as in it made me rush to see if everything was ok. Perhaps it is just me, but I wanted to get your thoughts. I recorded video of it and uploaded to my YouTube channel – the issue occurs right after the 3:53 point.

    Sounds like the Bearings are on the way out in the High-speed range, how old is the spindle and how much work has it done

    Only 2 months old with just a few hours on it. I will have to see what Camaster support wants to do. I had some stuff I wanted to do over the weekend - not sure if I should....

    It sounded ok in the mid-range speed so run it in that range, is this an air-cooled spindle, it could be the fan that has a problem if it is air cooled, and the noise could be from there, it's too new for it to be Bearing but you never know, check the fan though
