    Yes, what he said.

    If you don't wanna bother with that, just try doubling the RPM on the final cut and take off 0.3mm. Or run it trochoidal/multiple passes.

    A new Hurco VM10i provides 15hp power and 65nm torque; should be no problem for him to run a 20mm HSS drill at any speed it can take.
