Recently, I install on my ZEN a Chinese spindle motor with 3 phases inverters.
This spindle has 800W and an ER11 chuck. So I can use milling cutter
until 8 mm diameter. Also I have more Power and speed (24000 RPM).
And I can change the speed, on and off over Mach3 software and USB/RS485 converter to frequency inverters.
The motorholder I milled with my ZEN.

What is the weight of the spindle and I guess you would add water cooling to it?

Thank you for sharing.

The weigth is about 1.5Kg.
I don´t need watercooling (Watercooling machine weight over 2kg, longer and more diameter, about 80mm) because my machine work not so often and long.
If spindle running about 1h, she become only handwarm.
