Has anyone bought from them and do you know if their DRO is junk? They have 100% feedback, so that is a good indication. I want to invest in a 2-axis DRO, but the play money fund is a wee bit low, so the one listed on ebay looks in the ball park. I am also looking at the one SHARS sells as well. thanks!

I have a 4 axis on my Jet JVM-830 mill and a 2 axis on my G0709 lathe. I bought mine from Tom directly at tpactools.com instead of eBay. The only issue I've had has been with the mill's control box cutting out when it gets down to about 20 F in my shop. A heating pad on it works if I have a quick job and it's really cold. I believe their unit is from mTech if you care to do some Google'ing. Mine both have the 5 micron scales.

Hmm, pretty good prices.

I've been looking at the magnetic scales from dropros.com. They seem to get a lot of positive comments.
