Photo of the High Speed Spindle

"An easy to make auxiliary high speed spindle that will allow you to utilize very small diameter end mills without a high probability of breakage. Spindle RPM's of most home shop milling machines are simply too slow for end mills smaller than around 1/16" (1.6mm). Depending on the motor used and the pulley ratio, speeds of 8,000 RPM and much higher are available. " - Jerry
