Looks like you need an 800Hz VFD, which are more expensive than the standard 400Hz models.

Let us know how it works. That's a good deal at $2K.

I've seen one, but I don't remember where. You'd need some type of lift, as they don't have adjustable bases like handheld routers.

Some of the square bodied air cooled spindles are louder than a 7518. Maybe not louder, but a different frequency.

Yes, some shaft driven fans can be very loud. But the "fans" (more like small impellers) on my 2.2Kw round spindle are very quiet. But they don't move a lot of air.

I think the difference in noise is negligile.
Especially as the spindle gets bigger. Cutting noise will be far greater than the cooling fan.

RPM is way too high for 6m/min, unless you need the speed to make up for a lack of spindle power.
