He is replacing the DRO with the DRO-2L, using back the existing scales:
Message from Mario:
The DRO is in my workshop and it works great, I make model steam
loco 5 gauge, this is my hobby.
The TDS and the scales were mounted in about 6 hrs. and work great. I use it
on a Deckel FP1 milling machine (very popular in Germany).
Here are some photos.
They show the Deckel FP1 milling machine in my cellar room.
This machine is nearly 40 years old, but in really good condition.
You can mill up to 1/100 mm measuredness!
So there is very less amount of space in this room, please make excuses for the messy afterimage.
a) the machine without DRO
b) scales on the Y- and Z-Axis
c) scale on the X-axis
d) Detail on Z-axis
e) The DRO is standing free on the cabinet. This is the most useful place...
Hope You can use this photos...

Message from Rudolf:
I've finished my DRO installation on my OPTIMUM BF20 Mill.
Lasts about 2 days to install.
Y Axis brackets have been a little bit difficult to produce
and to install. X Axis went sooth as well as Z Axis.
DRO works as expected.
Attached a couple of pictures from my installation.
Finally thanks for all. Was a pleasure doing business with you. Never
thought to have a DRO for this money.....
With best regards
