    Having recently designed and built a mill myself might I offer this... Design the mill around the spindle you choose. It's important to determine what you intend to do with the mill. That is, milling aluminum, wood, plastic will help you ascertain the power needed. Is it a desktop mill or freestanding floor model. I'll be more than happy to help in any way I can if you need any assistance.
