    I'm a big fan of tachometer on any machinery. But on the other hand it irritates me
    when you look at a tachometer on some machinery site and the price is exhaustive. and for NO real reason.
    here are pictures of the tach system I use, from 9 to 99000 rpm, from 9 to 36 volts and can be mounted
    in 1/2 hour price $13.00 CAD. the only thing missing is a plastic boxe $3.00. enjoy the pictures.
    and YES my lathe is mounted slanted a bit. lollll rpm3.jpg rpm4.jpg rpm1.jpg rpm2.jpg

    Luc, is that a commercial unit, or did you build it?

    Thanks for the link. I have a tractor whose gauges have gone bad and the gauge cluster is quite expensive. I may replace the entire cluster with digital readouts now that I have seen what is available and the cost compared to OEM including the tach, fuel, engine temp, and hour meters.
