"My experience working with Spindle-lock has been both enjoyable and fruitful. Communication was excellent and the finished product is all that one could ask for. The quality of the workmanship is exceptionally good with fit, finish, and functionality being top-flite." John S., Eau Claire, WI, USA
"The Spindle-Lock was very useful in making the various spindle changes necessary for making a grinder light bracket. I have pinched my finger with the awkward spanner and this will be a great improvement." Philip S., State College, PA, USA

This is the X3 version of the Spindle-Lock in "Spindle-Lock Orange" and clear anodize.
We used the Caswell plating LCD anodizing kit to make this sample part. It has not been put in the vibratory tumbler. It's a manual debur and then off to the aluminum anodizing line. We ran the anodizing tub at 5VDC 3A constant current using a standard MASTECH TRIPLE DC VARIABLE POWER SUPPLY HY3005-3. The key here is to turn your power supply off. Turn the voltage knobs to high and current knobs to low/off. Then turn on the power supply and turn the current knobs up. Make sure it's set in SERIES. You'll get slightly more than 5 amps. The Caswell unit (Model SPC-9250) has a higher current output and is suited for those larger production batches.
Below is a short video clip of a pre-production Spindle-Lock being made on a Fadal VMC40/20/4020 model.
The Spindle-Lock only remains actuated by depressing the large button. In other words, the Spindle-Lock DOES NOT remain locked in position. This would be dangerous and could potentially be catastrophic for your spindle, machine, and you.
