    Awsome, thanks for the photo's. Like you say, there are not that many options to have dro and the taper turning attachment. Now I have more questions, What is on the end of the compound slide? Why a glass scale for Z and magnetic for the cross slide? What sort of readout have you got them connected to?
    Thanks, Neil

    thanks Neil,
    The compound slide is a George Thomas retractable top slide.
    the Z scale as fitted sometime ago and glass was the dominant choice. the cross slide needs the magnetic strip with the smallest reading head the Machine DRO now supply. I only fitted this back end of last year.
