    While running around trying to get more info, I ran across this nifty chart.

    I know there is quite a bit of confusion (at least for me) on all of the different variants. The main variables are cooling method, voltage, and power. Then you have quad vs triple bearing and collet sizes.
    for the quad

    I'll be building a Sphinx and was looking at a water cooled 1.5kW 220V. I was probably going to run it through a 110>220V transformer if I couldn't get 220V. I figured the 1.5kW would have much beeter low end torque since I plan on mainly cutting aluminum. I haven't had much issues with a Bosch Colt 1hp, but I have to run at a high rpm.

    My main question was whether a 110V VFD could run a "regular" 220V spindle.

    I don't know how accurate the chart below is. I found it in the thread below.
