German term or phrase: Spindeln
In a list of machine tools owned by a company:

23 konventionelle Maschinen (Raeumen, **Spindeln**, Bohren).

No further contect, sorry. Very grateful for your help but please don't tell me the answer is "spindles". It is a machining operation (like the other two words in the list)
