BLOG - 2539- mTech DRO 3i , 170, 270, 320 on LittleMachineShop Milling machine -- Jamie Cruz (USA)

Thanks James from USA (NJ) for sharing with us his mTech TDS 3i on his LittleMachineShop Milling machine.
Jamie Cruz :
very fun project!!!  Many thanks great product price shipping and customer service.  I will be buying from you again!!!! "

 ”I had to get creative there were some holes already drilled and tapped in the mill already so I just used those.  Its a little ghetto but I made my own brackets it works dam accurate and the little blue gauge slide easy in and out!”

“ maybe I need to focus more on exactly one turn.  I am happy!!!  Z axis I tried to do .005 thousands on the fine feed and look what came up.

“I did a test to see how it lines up with the handwheels  of 1 turn is 62.5 thousands of an inch”

Thanks for sharing your photo , Cheers

2550-Lathe machine DRO 2L, F5-170 and E5-620 - from Hans-Peter - Switzerland

Thanks to Hans-Peter from Switzerland for the generous photos.

This is a  Lathe Machine.

It is using :
mTech DRO 2L with scales travel – 170mm and 620mm
 From Hans-Peter: 

I received the rulers on Friday, this gave me time for installation and adjustment.
Today, I received the display-unit.
Installed and working perfect.

It is very good, that you inform on exact dimensions in e-bay. Due to this, I felt very confident to place a purchase order with you. Especially on the X-Axis, I only had 2mm on top and 2mm on bottom clearance. Also the combination and selection possibility of ruler-lengths and display units is just great. A very good homepage-setup you have.

The aluminium brackets were too large in hole distances (maybe for a bigger size ruler, the shims as well). No problem because I had to make special brackets anyway and I’m well equipped to do so (machines and material).

I’m very pleased with your service and communication. The instructions are well done.

Thanks and I wish you great success in doing further business.

Best regards
