Using a CNC router as a CNC Lathe

I plan to upgrade my machine to Centroid Acorn CNC12 over the winter. I will get the PRO mill software and the free lathe software. In my career I was able to accumulate a "decent" collection of various turning tooling. I can outfit my mill to do what is seen in the video quite easily.

Years ago I bought an Atlas 4" metal lathe. Would it be sooo cool to upgrade that to CNC. WOW - what I could to with that. Steel, Brass, Aluminum. Oh, the possibilities of things flying through my head.
