Nothing really special here, but it worked out so slick I figured I'd share the result.

I don't have a DRO on the Cinci, so resort to turn counting and little felt pen marks. I found that an SPI metal scale fits in very nicely on the front of the table - between the fixed table stops (after trimming 1/4" off) and captured by the movable table stops (and some real thick grease to act as "glue").

I selected a scale with 1/10" graduation, to make life easy for the 0.2"/turn hand wheel. A felt pen tick will still be handy to set the work piece and starting reference. I may end up cutting the upper row of numbers off, but for now I'll just use it.
