I should add there are some high torque low rpm vfd powered spindles available but they are very expensive. Usually found on bigger milling machines that cut metal.

Also add that the ER collet system found on these Chinese spindles is really nice. I have something like 13 different collet sizes both metric and imperial. I'm not stuck just using 1/8" and 1/4" end mills. Comets sets are cheap on eBay.

Is there any significant difference in sound between the .8kW spindle and the DW611?
