Hi Mark,

Did you try ordering via the Techsoft website?

http://www.techsoft.co.uk/products/mill ... efault.asp

If that doesn't work, you will have to phone them.

I have had similar issues too, also trying to locate somebody who would sell 0.4 and 0.5mm cutters. MSC Industrial sell them.

The Roland DGA Store appears to be a US site. Perhaps they mean that they don't provide support for an iModela sold in the UK?
They do have some iModela parts and tools on that website, but I think they are just for the 2.35 mm shank size.
Techsoft is the only one selling the 3 mm spindles, as far as I know.

I am new to all of this myself and have recently experienced some real frustration. It shouldn't be like this.

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I suspect that Roland didn't sell that many iModelas, and has decided to quietly 'sunset' it as a product. Am I right?

Cheers,

Dave

The 3 mm spindle is listed on the iModela site, they also have the 2.35 mm spindle listed .

That Techsoft website and the iModela website are both run by Techsoft.
It seems that some parts of their website(s) don't work properly. Some links work for ordering, and others don't.

If you try the Techsoft link in my earlier post, it should work. However, they don't seem to have the 2.35 mm spindle on that page.

If you try to order via the http://www.imodela.co.uk/Spare_Parts.asp link, the page loads, but with errors.

You may have more luck if you phone them.
