    DIY ATC add on for 6040 or custom made??

    Hi there, does anyone know of an aftermarket ATC spindle to add on to an existing machine?

    Running a Chinese 6040, with upgrade motors and controller (gecko 540), using Mach 3 and Vectric Aspire.

    Would love to know if there’s a lot out there to add ATC capabilities?

    We’re considering upgrading to a Camaster in the future (and we really want ATC) but if we could dabble with a DIY add on first that would be awesome.

    Found one on eBay here

    But not sure if anyone has tried it to make something like this work. Thanks so much Alex

    Or any number of Chinese ATC spindles starting at around $1600.
