Default X3?

I was wondering if it is possible to install the "X3" system on my current Stinger III?

John,
I had single spindle Cobra,,,,,,until I set it on fire,,,,then I took Jim's advice and made it a 3 head......something i should have done from the start.
It was so easy,,,almost easier than changing a tire on my truck..
Michael

Michael,

Thank you. That seems like great news! I have only been using 3 bits since I have had my machine. Did you order it from the head office? I emailed in about it, but I haven't heard as of yet.

Mike,
Did you add two routers or two spindles? Is it possible to add two spindles I wonder?

John,
I called to the office and after the laughing stoped they made me a three headed monster.
Dave,
I have one spindle and two routers.
If I ever tear it up again I'll get three spindles or an ATC..
Remember,,buy your third ( or fourth) machine first....
Correct Jim ???

Direct quote from Jim..

"It becomes cost prohibitive to install the X3. To even consider this
we would need your machine shipped to us."
