    Lathe DRO, 11" Logan

    My lost cost but accurate enough for my old Logan 11" lathe. Made from Stainless steel magnetic scales from AccuRemote. Some careful mounts and measurements had to be made, but works great. I removed the batteries and used a old wall wart transformer as the power source. I mounted the displays under the cabinet above the lathe right at eye level.Lathe DRO, 11" Logan-lathexaxis1_1.jpgLathe DRO, 11" Logan-lathexaxis2_1.jpgLathe DRO, 11" Logan-lathexaxis3_1.jpgLathe DRO, 11" Logan-lathezaxis1_1.jpgLathe DRO, 11" Logan-lathedrodisplay2_1.jpgLathe DRO, 11" Logan-lathezaxis2_1.jpg
