What kind of CNC rig is this? Is it home made? It looks at first like some sort of a spindle speed increaser from a VMC, but then it looks like a belt drive at the top? Cool! What RPM does it turn?

Details on the Spectralight mill are here:
I was using a Wolfgang Spindle. It is the 110V version. It turns about 20,000 rpm. I forget the exact speed I was cutting at, it was around 5.5 to 6 inches per minute.
