    DRO on Enco Mill/Drill (RF30)

    I'm working on the DRO for my Enco branded mill drill. Yep, there's a dozen posts out there for people doing the same, but the pictures are not always that great, and many chose the magnetic scales, not glass, so I wanted to get some pics out there and ask some questions. X-axis is about as...

    G0781 DRO installation

    Hi guy! I have a G0781 that I have upgraded to a belt drive. I recently purchased a nice set of glass linear scales for a 3 axis DRO. I went with the glass scales over the magnetic as I found that they should be much more accurate (unless they get dirty inside). The price wasn’t too bad and it...

    Question for LMS 5500 (SX2.7) owners

    Just got notice my 5500 is on the way - should be here (NJ) next week. My previous mill had a 3-axis DRO. Since the 5500 has the quill "dro" built in - I'm wondering if you are finding it t be adequate... accurate, etc. Maybe I can get away with a 2-Axis DRO and save a few bux - but would...

    [Documentation] Chinese DRO

    I bought a 3 axis and 2 axis DRO setup from the same seller on eBay. I would have bought them from someone more local, if I could have afforded to. I'm actually very pleased with the units, for the most part. Although the 2 axis display and 3 axis display are completely different from each...

    Tpac Tools Dro

    Just a warning for those purchasing DRO for their lathe. I just installed a DRO from TPAC Tools and realized the X axis scale only had 38.5 inches of travel. My bad - I didn't notice the travel of their scales was 39 inches - I just saw the 13 x 40 and ordered that for my Clausing Colchester 13...

    Smooth Arc Function

    Last year I bought a 3-axis DRO to go with a new BP clone, and I was excited to find out about the smooth arc function, however I cannot get it to work. I assume there are parameters I do not understand, but I'm a smart guy and I am at a loss. For reference, it is a DRO Pros 3M, Z on the knee (I...

    [Wanted] Dynamics Research Dro Model 700 Parts Machine Okay

    I am looking for a cheap Dynamics research parts machine. My model 700 has one dead axis, and the only way to fix it is with a donor unit to scavenge parts from. It's a mid 80's basic DRO, so not of high value, but I figured I'd take a stab at finding one laying around in some one junk...
