    When you build a spindle they are mostly custom and built around the Bearings being used what taper are you going to use this will take you to the next step, the Bearing size that will suit and from there the housing, you can sometimes find spindles 30 taper 40 taper already made and just have to make the housing to suit

    I agree completely.
    I used SKF 39mm id 68mm od and 37mm long wheel bearing for 40 taper.
    And if you are looking for a detailed drawings to build a spindle then you bather buy one.
    Not being rude but you obviously haw no idea what is involved to build one.
    You need good cnc machine(manual machine harder to nail the taper) to turn the parts on it,hardening of taper part of spindle and grinding taper to run properly.

    They are just a regular deep grove bearing, 6006zz and 6007zz are not suitable for spindle bearings if you where to use them you want to use 6006 2RS and 6007 2RS the ZZ is steel shields and do not seal the bearings the 2RS seal the bearing

    Why are these bearings not suitable for spindle bearings, is there is no way to remove the bearing clearance, Angular contact / AC bearings are what you would use for a spindle build and you can preload these bearings to adjust so the spindle is rigid when cutting
