I don't disagree in principle with anything you are saying, however my experience with HSD pricing is apparently different than yours. There are at least two online suppliers of genuine HSD spindles for a good chunk less than from Camaster, including one vendor with some ties to Camaster itself. You may be right that Camaster marks the spindle up a similar amount to other router vendors - I have no idea.

I have actually tried to find a Chinese HSD clone that is bolt-compatible with the real McCoy, and I haven't found one. There are some with similar specs, but none that have the same mounting profile or connector that I've found.

I'm not dissatisfied with my machine or with Camaster in general - as I posted above, I've had good service from them already. One way or another I will get a working spindle and get busy cutting stuff.
