    Managed to sort it, fired it up and its sweet. One thing thats bothering me is at 24k theres almost like a rattle inside that sounds like a bad bearing but drop a few thousand rpm and it vanishes.

    Good points are when it was running there was 0 vibrations on the kitchen counter and it sounds good although its going to be a while before I get used to the different sounds at different ranges, I'm used to it just getting loader :D

    Cheers, Phil

    Like a new car it is worth running the bearings in before loading it up at full chat.

    Damn my hastiness, I bought the cheapest one from aliexpress a few days ago and it was 8 (plus 1 bank charge) more than they're now selling them in the UK on ebay. Plus the seller has dispatched it with FedEx even though I chose DHL as the courier, so now I'll get a nice admin charge from them. Oh well

    I'll post again when it arrives

    Still looking at spindles on eBay and unsure. Had a good price off chai but with shipping takes it up a fair bit.
    There's one via solar.jean which I am tempted by, is a four bearing model but only has a 3 pin connector. Is this an issue? Can an earth still be fitted - does it need one?

    You could easily change it for a 4 pin connector, or just fasten the earth cable to the spindle body via the spindle mount or tapped hole in the Z-axis, assuming they're all metal.

    The 3-pin connector may imply it's an older spindle, since in the past these spindles used to exclusively use 3-pin connectors. Clearly that's just speculation though...as I've already mentioned, my spindle with 3-pin connector from solar.jean has been good and does include 4 bearings.
