    Phill,
    Thank you so much for the links, I have just ordered the parts. Looks so compacted.

    Is it loud when it's running with no load or just loud when cutting?
    You think that's too expensive? You're not a Model Engineer are you? :D

    Very loud at any speed with no load

    Just checking, in that case replacing it with a water cooled spindle will definitely be an improvement,

    The water cooled Chinese spindle motor is way quieter than a router, however, there will always be some noise from the cutter as they spin very fast compared to a milling machine. Overall though it is much quieter.

    What kind of tubing are you guys using when connecting to pc cooling equipment?
    Usually in pc modding its seethrough stuff with maybe colored coolant/water?
    I have thought about going this way but Im a bit worried about algae and general biological growth.. but I might be an idiot because its a closed system?

    I run mine with water from the dehumidifier and some antifreeze, I have not noticed any growth in it.

    Standard clear tubing. The cheapest. No problem after a couple of years. And i really like using Pink liquid, so i see what happens. On my second machine i overdid it and ordered PU tubing from china. But there was no actual need in fact. The only difference was that the clear tubing around me is strange 5, 7mm and all connectors are 6, 8, 10mm. So as i wanted to do it more professionally looking with quick connectors, that was the only reason to use PU tubing. It cost very cheap from China.

    By the way i use quick connectors on the spindle side too.

    Im looking for quick connectors aswell but there seems to be some special threading in the spindle. Maybe m8x1.. have to buy a bolt and test before I order anything :)
    If going with pc cooling stuff there seems to be alot of parts using od/id 10/8 tubing.
    If getting quick connectors with the same size I dont have to worry about reducers.. ;)
