The wait begins. I waffled back and forth between the LMS and a PM25 but the PM25 was just going to be too big for my available space.
I got the tooling package that includes the 3" machinist vise along with the tach and power feed.
Still trying to decide on what to do for DRO's.
I have been looking at the arduino thread and I really like the idea of it as it will allow for some options I just won't get with 3 separate cheap dro's like I did on my lathe.
Will also be adding the reverse switch.

Good choice. I had a LMS mill and it served me very well for what I needed it for.

It may be out of your reach at the moment, but I put a 3-axis DroPro 3M on my little mill. Very accurate and that forth digit is actually quite useful with the 20 tpi leadscrews on that mill.

I just checked out their site and I really like the built in options. Never heard of or seen an arc radius cut before. Cool!
