    Apparently all these spindles come from one of two factories. I wouldn't worry about the pictures.. just pick one. If you're application warranted getting a better quality spindle, then I'd suggest a specific one from www.aliexpress.com (which would cost quite a lot more), but for cutting foam / wood any of them will be fine.

    1.5kW spindles are available with ER16, but you're right - I meant to say ER11.

    This thread is rapidly becoming a duplicate of this one, mainly due to me admittedly.
