Mini-Mill Part 3: DRO Completed

Mill Setup

Well, the Digital Readout is finally finished on my mill, and it works well. I still have to figure out how to use it, and make sure that the direction of the axis make sense. This thing is really a small computer.

Two projects remain on the mill. First, I need a chip guard to protect the X-axis scale at the back of the table. Next, I’ve devised an LED lighting system that needs to be installed. I’m using two LED ring lights around the spindle to help illuminate my work. I just need some adhesive backed magnetic material to secure the light to the body of the mill.
