Max spindle speed What is the maximum safe/reliable speed for the spindle on the ER mill? Is it normal for the spindle to heat up? After running at 10k rpm with a 2mm end mill

Re: Motor suggestion (UK) John, This is a standard upgrade for the Unimat, you can look on the Unimat group in Yahoo for an idea. Most use a 24 V scooter motor, a $25 switching power
