Two interesting points concern the mounting of hobbyymat vertical head within the bracket that fastens to the back of the bed: I’m not familiar with your machine there I did not follow this up with the seller…. While Hobnymat was at it I also installed way covers, made out of the plastic concertina part of an expanding file. The arrangement works very well — only a few bits of swarf have gotten through the fur and they were easily dealt with by the yellow plastic strips on the scales.

I had already disassembled the table during the lathe rebuildfor ease of storage and also to clean the worst of the muck off most of the bits. Ground stock would be better if you have some. I did not follow this up with the seller… The scales had solid mounting holes, and featured a yellow strip that neatly opened and closed around the link to the reading head.

However the KT mill table was in need of some TLC… it was covered in muck and sometime in the past someone had broken both of the handwheels probably when trying to move it.

Any advice would be most appreciated – thanks! What do you plan to cut with this setup? I ordered them and they arrived about a week later dunno how they are managing this but delivery times from China are now one to two weeks, pretty impressive. Do you already have an account?

Any other advise or suggestions on this would be greatly appreciated. I installed the scale upside down — with the reading head at the bottom. Results 1 to 5 of 5. This damage may have happened at the same time the handwheels were broken. I also added a piece of thin aluminium angle to shroud the scale from the top.

Behind the reading head and also the long part of the scale are spacers which give the necessary offset to each part of the scale. While not ideal, I think that even if this rust had been on the ways it would not have caused too many problems. Hence, should the column prove to be out of line in a fore and aft direction, the only solution is to shim the bracket mounting faces at the top or bottom.

DRO kit off eBay I bought my kit from seller motor-mall.

Also it would make more sense to have slotted or square ends rather than a hex bolt head, as it is difficult to get a spanner over the gib screws on the lower plate.

It’s driving 5mm lead 16mm RM linearmotionbearing ballscrews. I am far from a mill expert. I took the top two parts of the table off and laid them upside-down on a sheet of plate glass, and then aligned and punched holes in both parts of the table to mount the scales.
