I have the opportunity to purchase a 2.2Kw Teknomotor, 24k rpm, dual nose bearing, air cooled spindle from someone. It was recently professionally rebuilt and the price is $300. I want to put it on my relatively new (2013) PRS Standard Shopbot Buddy to replace the PC router. I am trying to understand what else I will need besides a VFD to get it installed. I am just a hobbyist and not subjecting it to a large duty cycle.

Is the Teknomotor is a reliable spindle?

Is there some kind of speed control interface that I will need from Shopbot? I am running Vectric Vcarve Pro.

Where to get correct cables?

Suggestions for VFD?

Thanks for any input, Mike
