Spindle wires? As in from the VFD for a water-cooled spindle?

Well, the easiest, of course, is to move the VFD closer to give more wire.

Other than that, it's going to be some custom wiring one way or the other.
If you choose to hack an extension cord for the raw wire, be sure it's rated for 600V.

Hope that helps, sorry there's no simple "2018-035 Spindle Extension Cable v1.02" :(.
