Re: Large Dial for Your Lathe - DRO instead!


Here is the DRO setup on my 10K.
Two little mounting screws required . I drilled and tapped 6-32 holes in the bed casting to hold the ruler. The reading head is mounted directly on the saddle using existing bolt holes as seen on the picture.  The display is. Mounted on the taper attachment.

I'd like to have a look at how you did the DRO's on your Heavy Ten. So far I only them on the carriage, and tail stock.

DROs would be nice.  I have DROs on my mills, and now that I have a Monarch 10EE, it has (came to me with) Newall DROs on two axes.  Very sweet.  I never look at the dials for anything but the compound now.  Maybe at a later time. 

Right now, we are just trying to get the cross slide screw repaired.  Whether he uses the dials or a DRO, still requires a functioning feed screw.
