    .
    my experience is hard milling more to do with short length tool holders and short length tools and low depth and width of cuts when hard milling.
    .
    i usually only take a .001 or .002" at a time usually milling a part for a change in design after heat treated. never had problems but i has not expecting more than 2 hours tool life anyway

    Both Okuma MB-v and the MA-v series has got 25k spindels on the optionslists. And probably scales too, (i know the horizontals got those options available, and probably everything else you can think of). Sounds a bit strange to me to compare a makino with the "cheapest" Okuma-model. I would go for the beefier MA for that kind of work.

    Hi those spindles are not for roughing, but for finishing ...
