I’ve been digging in with Aaryn in the laser world but for me, it seems like maybe a spindle is the better choice afterall. For those of you that have use the DW660 and a spindle, how much noise difference is there? I’m not trying to quiet down for the neighbors or anything and I’ve been grabbing my chainsaws in the shop while babysitting cuts anyway so the muffs are on and the tunes are rocking. It just seems to me that a bit quieter would be nice. I can run my Makitas without hearing protections (working ice) just fine so I assume the bulk of the noise comes from the DW?
Are there any benefits to a spindle other than noise levels? Are they stronger and allow more aggressive feed rates? Do they have greater longevity? Wider assortment of bits and better collet setups? Quick change would be nice.
