Here is my very old machine but you can see the simple hook arrangement which allows the machine to move around:
BUT - if you have this sort of GX16 screw-on connector to the spindle it will work loose on the pins over time and in case you don't know you must not allow a break in the circuit when under power. It will almost certainly kill the VFD stone dead - ask me how I know! :
So you can replace the connector with a strain relief grommet (see top of spindle):
Plus solder the cables direct to the motor by removing the end cap.
