921- Georg - Germany - Deckel FP1 Mill with TDS-3i DRO

Thanks Georg for the nice photos:
Message from Georg:
 thanks for the quick and reliable delivery.

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...

Best regards

Thanks Rudolf from Germany for his photo on Optimum BF20 Mill with
Scale : 220mm, 320mm, 370mm

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

Rudolf Eineder
