Kress is now AMB

Kress spindles are widely used by European manufacturers of CNC milling machines such as Pedcad, Techno Isel and others. It is rugged precision spindle manufactured in Germany. Whereas replacement spindles and parts are common in Europe they have been harder to find in North America.
