    Default BTC spindle and auto tool change conversation

    I am eveluating options for a donor mill for a CNC conversion. I am also considering building one from scratch using epoxy granite, but if I can find a good donor mill that path would be much less painful. I definitely need auto tool changing possibly with BTC type spindle. Most of the existing manual mills are not designed for BTC spindle it seems? I looked at precision Mathews and some other brands in Alibaba and all of them are equipped with non BTC spindle. Can I have auto tool changing with non BTC spindle?

    Tormach comes comes to mind. I have also seen a couple of others.

    I guess I would start out with a machine that is already CNC and has an ATC. It is much easier to upgrade than to convert a manual machine.
