Anyone looked at this one? The reviews look pretty good. I'm using a Porter Cable 690 router motor that screams like a banchee. I expect that I'll still use ear protection even if I were to get a silent spindle since the bit noise would be enough to irritate me. At the other end of my shop, I could be working without hearing protection with bit noise but the 690 is loud any place in the shop.

Looks like a nice kit for the money. Reviews sound good mostly and they say it is quite. Not sure about the mounting to the shark but I would think it is doable.

Mounting the spindle on your HD4 shouldn't be a problem. You need to make sure the Shark controller supplies enough amperage to run the spindle and cooling pump (the VFD {speed control} might need to be powered on with the CNC and not the running program.)
