What's the crack with buying these things then? My 2.2kw is calling it a day after only 11 months of cautious use.

Are there any sellers in particular to buy from/avoid? I'm preferably looking for a uk based seller if possible, as I'm mid project and need to get it finished ASAP. I know cnc4you sell them but only as a spindle/VFD pair, where I only need the spindle. Unless anyone on here wants a huanyang VFD?

Any little hidden gem quality alternative spindles out there that aren't bank breaking? I can afford to pay more but not four figures more.
