So after reading all you all's comments and looking around I was able to pick up a Dewalt DWP611 for a good price over the weekend. (Linky to the DWP611)
I also ordered the precise bits ER16 1/4, 1/8 collets and nut that fit the DWP611 once everything comes in and I get some mounts made up. I'll post up some photos and let you guys know what I think about it.

Thanks again for all the feed back and help!

Has anyone actually used a 600w or 800w spindle? How does the power and weight compair to a dw611 or similar router? I'm looking at a dw611 with superPID vs a spindle with vfd for control with mach3. Does anyone have experience with the spindles?
