    In 40 taper, I only can think of Hurco VM5.

    For 30 taper, Fanuc Robodrill or Brother Speedio.

    Dmg Mori Mill Tap 700. I see a few used ones around $60k USD every once and awhile. They have a Siemens 840d sl control which is very popular in Europe.

    have a look at XYZ machine tools and Dugard, having used a Siemens shop mill control you wont want to touch a haas again!

    What is the exact kind of work you'll be doing with it?

    If you're looking for a CNC mill capability for general-purpose workshop stuff? The Mini is probably good. If it's a prototype situation where you want to rapidly iterate on stuff that you'll farm out to someone else for production? It'll work fine.

    If this is going to be paying for itself with any sort of serial production work though, the Mini's very slow speeds all around will be a hinderance to profitability. If it's internal production, there are scenarios where the Mini can do the job, but the band of variables that it's workable for are very narrow and even modest growth will turn the Mini into more of a liability than an asset. There are better machines suited for production and the price premium for them becomes worth every penny (i.e. Speedio or Robodrill).

    I have experience only on big machines (12ft table mill and vertical lathes)

    I will do small batch of work from alloys for automotive and some prototype work for near by armory.
    Everything will be mainly up to 150 pcs lets and i agree with you now when i compared mini mill with others it looks little bit slow.

    2 Minis will outperform 1 Speedio, for about the same cost.

    Speedios and Robodrills, shine in high production applications because their exceptional reliability.
