I have a Jet JVM-830F that I put a 2 axis DRO many years ago. I decided that I wanted a 3 axis DRO.

What was on it was a Sargon that went out of business years ago. I was thinking I would need to change out everything.

I found that Linear Measuring Systems makes adapters to use Sargon and other systems to work with Jenix DRO systems.

For less than $500 I was able to purchase a new scale and display that would use my already installed scales.

This is the new 3 axis display.

The old one was just 2 axis and had no functions.

From Shars.com you buy a single axis display for quill or knee.

You can find them on Amazon too
