Heavy 10 spindle speeds ???

Hello folks,

Here's another newby question :-)

I have not found any information on on the speed ranges of the
spindles. I want to be able to turn aluminum and small diameters.
From this, I assume I'd want speeds up to 2000 rpm ?
From the parts lists I've looked at, all of the spindles turn in
plain bearings. Doesn't this effect the rpms a lathe will turn ?
Do any of the South Bends use ball or roller bearings for the
spindles ?
