    Can't answer the price question but the huanyang VFD is fine and about the best of the chinese ones. The earlier versions had some issues but they seem to have sorted those so I wouldn't worry about it.

    Hi Andrewuk
    Jazz is right. I have one of these from a supplier on eBay who ships from a warehouse in Portsmouth. It is great. Hold onto your money until the prices come down. It is Chinese New Year so nothing will happen for a few weeks yet. Once they start shipping again from China, the prices should come down. Paid about 230 pounds for mine last year.

    Hi has anyone a recommendation for a pump to cool a 2.2kw spindle and a source for a spindle mount or dxf for one. Thanks

    Hi Andrew, you can find the mounts on ebay for around 30+, in the rfq section on this forum there has been one or two offers for getting a custom mount made.

    For a pump you can use one designed for fish tanks, though personally I prefer the idea of using a central heating pump.

    Something like this Ultra Quiet Mini DC 12V 3M 240L H Brushless Motor Submersible Water Pump Hot | eBay would be fine. I was surprised just how little water was needed to keep the spindle cool. A central heating pump would be massive overkill and in my opinion (for what its worth) would possibly make the pump cavitate because of the small pipes in the system and of course the power wasted with such a pump ..Clive

    I use a caravan water pump from eBay which says 15 mins max at 12V. Runs fine on 5V, though, and delivers enough water to keep things cool.
