Quiet Spindle upgrade/enclosure/dino knob

General Information

I recently did a standard quiet spindle upgrade and made an enclosure for all of the electronics, and an under-machine storage solution.
Also, I cut a toy dinosaur in half and made a fun drawer pull with it.

I've been considering a spindle upgrade for my Shapeoko 2. You helped me make up my mind. The cabinet is a really good idea. Thanks for the video.

I really wanted the dino knob to be the spindle speed control :(
