An inexpensive DRO

This can be a nice addition to a lathe or mill. Without going to full distance to adding a DRO, just having a dial guage permanently mounted can be a big help.

Abom79 videos

Abom79 did a number of Youtube videos about how he added a Newall DP500 DRO to one of his mills. The cost was nearly $1000 for two axes, and additional $300 to put one on the quill. He got the parts from KBC Tools.
