Now that sounds like a viable idea.  I'll have to ponder that for a while.

You know.  I thought about this for a while, and then I realized its silly.  I could just buy a motor and spindle for the price of that spindle cartridge.  Swap motors when I need to change bearings easier depending on how I mount it than swapping a belt driven spindle cartridge. 

Speeder Spindle Cartridge
Price: $240.63 +shipping +motor +mfg an assembley to mount it all. 

Chinese 1.5 kw ER 16 VFD spindle / motor 260 + customs duties. 

A water cooled 2.2 kw w/ ER 20 is only 330. 

Simple clamp mounts will work with the spindle motors too.  Just like the router mounts I have been making.

Absolutely. You can see how the bearings hold up and change things later if you think you need to beef it up a bit.

I was hoping to come up with something, "better," but while better may be possible it just isn't cost effective.
