    I know I'm going to be branded a "dial hater" (again), but set this caliper (if that's indeed what it is) aside and get yourself a genuine Mitutoyo 6" digital caliper, something like this:...

    I agree, and even if you must replace the motor with a VFD setup, why so low horsepower? If you want good performance at lower speeds, I'd think you should use at least a 5Hp. And check if there'll...

    Good luck with whatever choice is made. If you do get a honing setup, let us know how it works for you, as well as an idea of the cost. It could help others along the way.
