Spindles are available many different ways. A 220v model could be run from a VFD on 120v.

I don't think that is possible, (;-) TP

I am pretty sure they have VFD's with 110v single phase to 220 3 phase. Let me check. I know my VFD goes from single to 3 phase but it is a 220 input.

I do not see anywhere that it states it can Boost voltage. I could be wrong but i have never heard of one that could Boost voltage above input levels.

120v 1phase =   120 3phase
220v 1 phase  =  220 3phase
220 3phase  =  220 3 phase
480v 3phase = 480 3 phase

Hi, and thank you for your reply. I would would rather work with a 220VAC Spindle Motor as I dont care too much for cluttered electrics. I believe there are heeps of Spindle Motors on the market but I feel this is something I need to research properly before diving in as I did with Chinese CNC Machine.

Buggs, I agree. Not doing your research just cost money in the long run. Dont be mad about the Chinese machine. The truth is most of us wouldnt be experiencing any problem if they didnt make what they do, because we wouldnt have a machine. If you stick with it, you will look back in no time and realize it is mostly about preparation and set up. Oddly those same things are needed on any task that you would be proud to call your own when you are finished.
