    I would think something like a flex pipe for a dryer connected to the bottom would be all that's needed to pull in fresh air but not be too much to impact a dust collector if the spindle is inside a...

    I'm thinking about switching to a spindle driven by a VFD. So much quieter and the speed control can be moved (VFD) can be easy to reach. The ER style collets offer more flexibility.

    It looks interesting. It's hard to tell but it still looks like a universal motor. Since getting a spindle for my cnc router I have come to the conclusion that my next "router" in my router table...

    I have been noticing some sellers doing this lately. The last time it happened the seller used Bluecare Express. I assume it's a company that specializes in using Amazon to fulfill ebay orders.
