    Some manufacturers seem to class any vertical CNC mill as a VMC if it's "In a box with some perspex doors on"

    So my question is, if I put my little benchtop vertical CNC mill in an enclosure with perspex doors can I call it a VMC? :D
    You think that's too expensive? You're not a Model Engineer are you? :D

    I think I would say a VMC includes an ATC, so will your CNC mill in a box have an ATC?

    Well, no, not to start with, and that was my assumption but as some VMC's in the For Sale section haven't had an ATC I thought I'd ask the question ;-)

    Ah, well there's your problem, you ass-u-me'd something.

    Hmm, I might design, build and add an ATC when I get my new VMC in the new year :D
