    Default Cooling down after dormant

    Ok, this may be a stupid question. Should you go through a cool down cycle routine if the spindle has been dormant for a few hours.

    If the spindle hasn't been running I don't think a cool down is necessary.

    In general, after a full day of cutting plywood, I will let my spindle cool for about 20 minutes before I turn power off. If I've been running it on a large carving (say 12 hours non stop), I will let the spindle cool for about 30 minutes before shutting the power off.

    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in one pretty and well preserved piece; But to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, worn out, bank accounts empty, credit cards maxed out, defiantly shouting "Geronimo"!

    If you make something idiot proof, all they do is create a better idiot.
