Same as the 300w. Warm to the touch.

In Celsius degree? I'm asking it because I want build a mount with a 3D Printer, and the PLA material support up to 60°C.

PLA is getting soft at 60degrees.
It's not worth it unless you can print Nylon or other hi-strength material.

The PLA holder should hold up well enough to allow you to use the spindle to cut out a new holder out of HDPE or the like. Over time and use with long cutting jobs it's going to lose precision if it gets over about 60 degrees science (c).
