I recently purchased a 12" harrison lathe. I'd like to add a DRO to it, and thinking I will just buy a new kit to install. I have found DRO PROs from a quick search. Does anyone have a recommendation on where to go for a new DRO? I was looking at getting magnetic scales just so I could cut them down to the right size after it got here.

I have 3 DRO's from DRO Pro's. They are the Electronica with the magnetic scales and they are great. First one bought about 6 years ago with no problems, on 24 hours a day 7 days a week. DRO Pros service is great and very helpful.

I got an Easson 12B or C from a seller in the UK that was more reasonable than buying here in US. I don't think the mag scales are quite as nice as the Dro Pro ones as they don't have end caps but I made my own. Cost for three mag scales and dro was less than $1000. Dave
