      I have been trying to put a DRO on one of my lathe and mill but the glass scale was to big. I had busted the Y axis belt on my CNC build and had to get a new one. With the busted belt and a rotary encoder I had ordered 10 or 12 year ago for something and never used it. Here is the DRO build for the mill

      Here is the DRO lathe build 20210102_131822.jpg
      Drilled 2 holes in the lower part of the cross slide and 1 hole in the upper part

      I marked were I drilled the hole in the upper slide and lined it up with the access hole moved the belt clamp in line of the access hole too


      it takes only 3 screws to put it on

      this a hard drive head bearing
      I milled belt block out and used a slitting saw in the mill using the new DRO i made for the mill
