    Which bearings are best for a Taig spindle?

    I need to change the bearings in order to get less heat when engraving at higher speed and need to know if I can use the 6203/C3 option that will give an extra play when it gets hot. Anybody here withe experiences? Wil that extra play result in wider cuts with tiny engraving bits?

    Without active cooling in the Taig headstock... at High Speed....
    Hybrid Ceramic Bearing is the Only way to go.....
    Less thermal transfer, and expansion
    But Good hybrid bearing are expensive!!
