    I have a difficult time with this arguement of "I only spent" on a mill, so the DRO shouldnt cost that. If you got a 67 Stang for $350 in good running condition, would you argue putting $1,500 into...

    I would make a backup spar for the scale to mount to, with countersunk holes for the screws. Then make some spacers with holes for the screw to go through in the middle and a set screw hole on the...

    Alot of what you are asking is going to be preference. Some hobby guys want just a positioning system that tells them where they are at, can zero, and inch/mm. Some expect these to be basically CNC...

    Barry says it sounds mostly like an oversized washer on the drawbar. Second choice would be a bad upper spindle bearing.

    Without it being on a machine and having the display, you will probably need to get an RGA from Ryan at Newall and they can test it. Whether it is free or not, who knows.

    One of their guys hops on here every now and then. I have seen them, but in a sales setting not a shop setting and actually on a machine. Made down in Lafayette IN I believe.

    I can check at the shop tomorrow to see if I have those lengths. Doubt I have any 2um.

    Can you verify that none of these need to be plugged into a millmate or turnmate?

    One of their CNC controllers, boss or something like that. The motor is upside down. Most likely an R8 spindle.

    Just an FYI, in case you didnt see this earlier. Most of the parts from the BP wont fit in a Jet. Secondly, that part for a BP is $250 so it isnt saving you much.
