This kit is installed on a lathe with a vertical milling column to give a full 3-axis digital readout the same as on a mill. For more details on the mill digital readout, see P/N 8100.
As long as we were designing the electronics package, we went the extra step to include an RPM readout, adding an additional function to the package. The sensors are easy to install and require no modification of your Sherline lathe.
As a cost-saving measure, an accommodation has also been made for owners of both a lathe and mill to use a single electronic display box for both machines. The input cables from the lathe can be unplugged and the readout box transferred from the lathe to the mill and vice versa. Depending on which machine you already have fitted with a DRO, ask for the upgrade for the other machine that allows you to use your existing box. See P/N 8210 if you already have a lathe with a DRO. See P/N 8220 if you already have a mill with a DRO.
NOTE: The DRO can be ordered on any new machine as a factory installed option. The digital readout handwheels replace the standard handwheels that would normally come with the machine. If you purchase a machine with factory installed DRO, the regular handwheels are not included. If you purchase the DRO as a separate option and install it yourself, you will have the stock handwheels left over.
Always wear safety glasses when operating machine tools.
