    I would like to mount a spindle on my Machinist lathe in place of the trim router I currently use. I find the trim routers do not hold up well to the heat they generate running for long periods of time and the bearings burn up.

    I was told a spindle would be better.
    Is this true?

    If so what is a reasonable priced 110vac spindle?

    Hey Selkov. Long time no see. What type of machinist lathe do you have?
