        ya might be better off  puttin yer scale on the non chuck side of yer saddle even though ya have the machined side on the left side of the saddle . the scale would probably have a longer life span

Re: iGaging for 9" South Bend

In the past, I had an igaging DRO scale on the cross slide. I found it not accurate enough and I was still relying on dials. I removed it a few years ago.
 
 THe DRO scale fitted on the saddle is extremely useful, and easy to install
I needed to drill and tap two small holes on the bed for mounting the scale itself.
on the saddle, I used the gib screw under the saddle.  Display is mounted on a column I installed on the taper attachment. It is a must.
first picture shows the sensor bolted with the hardware provided with the scale to the staddle. Second picture shows the column that is bolted to the taper attachment, using a plate that is drilled and using the taper attachment securing bolt as fastener (no mod to the taper attachment)
 
My xfeed scale was re cycled on my atlas shaper in order to cut a rack.

Transfer of Heavy 10 Group

Jim_B
 

Rather than combine both the Southbendlathe and the SouthbendHeavy10 groups, I have chosen to start a new groups.io group.
I di this because each group will then have 10 Gb of room.

The transfer will take some time based on the transfer of this group from Yahoo. 
I will keep you informed as  it progresses.

Re: iGaging for 9" South Bend

Scott McGrath
 

I put conventional glass scales on my model A workshop 


the hardest part is mounting on the cross slide.   To prevent interference with tooling and work,  scale is mounted on the back of the saddle using the mount point for taper attachment and a pushrod couples the crosslide to the scale.   

The same bracket drives the X axis scale mounted on the bed

Since you are using iGaging scales you can use the arduino based DRO described in Yuristoys.   Which I use on a small mill.


Careful levelling and shimming is necessary to prevent cosine error.

But some nonlinearity is inherent in an older lathe  so having a few 1-2-3 blocks on hand is a very good thing as the DRO can compensate for non-linearity if you have some standards on hand

Jim, yes, bring the Heavy 10's over either here or separately if convenient It bugged me that some guys were still posting over at Yahoo where I couldn't seem to make a post with photo attachment. Groups.io seems much more bulletproof.
