Dual end stop rambo board and changing tools

Hey all, I’m in the planning stages here and I’m interested in having the flexibility to run both a spindle and a laser on my machine. I’m not thinking like having them both mounted at the same time, more like I could interchange them easily. Is that feasible? Or would I need to mess around with firmware to make the change every time I want to switch tools?

My plan is to get started with a spindle and eventually add a ~3 watt laser for engraving, so it’s not a deal breaker, but could tip the balance for one control board over another. Currently leaning towards the rambo w/dual endstops. Was previously looking at using a raspberry pi with protoneer hat

You can have them both but, a laser strapped to a vibrating dirt making machine is probably not good in the long term.
