    Quill DRO

    Quill DRO installed at mill/drill HF40939.
    Little bit better quality than iGAGING DROs.
    Know at least one guy (rossbotics) who would like to have it on his mill/drill.
    Materials used: aluminum angle bars and 10 mm steel plate



    Cheers

    That is a very clean mounting of the DRO.

    I have had great results with iGaging Dro and the price is right.

    Now you just need TouchDRO.

    Ralph,

    Thanks for TouchDro information. Already have 2 iGAGING DROs installed on the same milling/drilling machine. One for X and other for Y axis movement. I am also happy with them even these are poor man's DROs, not real-time professional DROs. Also have another Chinese made (500 mm length) DRO (exactly the same as iGAGING but without brand name) which will be installed for Z axis (knee) movement.
    Cheers,
    LMMasterMariner
