From Teun :
I’ve finished mounting the DRO. I think I did a reasonable job. My machine is an Aciera F3 (Swissmade from the 80’ies).
I painted everything in the same RAL color as the machine so it looks like it belongs there.

I think it is a nice installation with a touch to make it look the same color as the machine.
