Re: Large Dial for Your Lathe - DRO instead!
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
At some point I had Igaging DRO scales on both axis on my 10K. I never really used the xslide scale as it is less accurate than the dial. THe Z axis is a must. I use it everytime the machine is in use. It well worth the $70 cdn it cost me at Busy Bee store.
scale took less than 30 min.

I fretted about backlash and a larger dial until I ran across this idea. I now have digital readouts on both axes and plan on putting one on the tailstock as well. You can’t beat Harbor Freight when they run a sale on them for $10 each. I can send photos of how I did it on my Heavy 10 if anyone is interested.
