Default Proxxon MF 70 Milling Machine


im thinking on getting this , i have this one but this little proton would be for more precise small jobs

my concerns are:

- would this proxxon use standard mills and collets? it comes with collets up to 3.2 millimeters, but the mill bits i use are 4 and 6mm ...

- speed, it goes from 5000 to 20.000 RMP , but i most times use about 1000 RPM for the jobs i do otherwise the mill gets too hot and dies very soon

i don't know much about mills really but this speed thing is very weird, i thought it could be related to the small size , that for small diameter mill bits its better to go faster, but then i checked this mill similar to proton one in size and the speed goes from 0 to 2000 rpm, similar to my actual machine , so why proton goes from 5000 to 20.000 ???!!!

thanks in advance

It looks like it is based on a rotary tool like a dremel. And the sizes seem about right for a small rotary tool. Most bits that fit it are probably designed for that speed. It is a pretty light mill, I don't know how long it would last...
