G'day Mate, I was faced with the same problem as I have a machine coming from the US that requires me to get my own spindle. After posting this question on a couple of sites, I was directed to have a look at some of the cheap spindle/inverter combos on offer off Fleabay. The feedback I had from several guys was these chinese spindles are pretty good for the coin. One guy had 3 of them in use, one of them for over 2 years, running 4 or 5 times a week? At around the same price as a good trimmer or router, it is not like the farm is on the line either. Plus as a bonus they are a lot quieter, might be worth a look. This is the seller recommended to me. AIR-COOLE MOTOR SPINDLE 1.5KW AND MATCHING INVERTER h4 | eBay Please note this is not an endorsement just an example, as always with this stuff, buyer beware. Cheers Paul.
