South Bend Digital Readout

Organizer: Steve Pilon

Summary

The South Bend lathe would be much more useful if it had a digital read out, a digital readout(DRO) measures the actual movement of the axis and then displays the information on a screen. The Bridgeport mill along with the Gorton mill already have DROs. Using DROs account for backlash and generally make it easier for beginners and advanced users to make accurate parts.
