I installed an i gaging DRO 2 axis system on my Grizz 0619 Mil ( SX 3 ) but the need to replace batteries when I use it is a PITA is there a compatible 2 axis read out that uses 120 V for power I don't use the Mill very often and the batteries run down in a month or so

I hate when batteries go dead, especially when you aren't using them. That's why I like to use dial calipers, etc . Sorry cant answer your question myself, but wanted to put my 2 cents in about batteries. : )

All batteries are not equal. I have observed that the no-name button cells (e.g. LR44) and CR20xx type lithium batteries don't have the same capacity as the name brand batteries have.

Isn't that the truth? I attempted to 'recharge' my stack of 2032's in a junker desktop computer. Hasn't quite worked out yet.
I guess that if the cell gets too low the circuit on the mobo can't charge 'em.
