When I received the G0755 three years ago one of the first things I added was a 2-axis magnetic DRO from DRO Pros. At the time I looked at the third axis for the quill but could not see an easy way to mount it and also thought that it would not really be needed.
Forward three years and multi projects and I am now sure that I do want better measurement of the quill position but still cannot see and easy way to add a third track and reader.
I saw an inexpensive vertical scale at CDCO's site and thought it would be worth a try.
Little bit of work for a Sunday and I will no longer have to use the hand wheel dial for depth measurements.

I am pleased with CDCOs product. It does maintain the settings if it powers down or if I turn it off.
Once it is off, it automatically comes back to life with any movement of the sensor.
