Tiffie...some time ago you had a post showing Littlemachineshop.com's laser center/edge finder. I liked the idea and ordered one early in December. It finally got here today and I'm really liking this thing. It came with the polarizing attachment included in the base price. Thanks for the idea.

Happy new year to you and yours and to all the guys who I have learned so much from over the last year. :)

Nice but probably illegal to import here, they would be classed as an extremely dangerous weapon of mass destruction...

Thanks dockrat.

They are a very good unit. They make picking up an edge or a line very easy. It is surprising how accurately your eye can "centre" a "dot" - and with the polarising lens you can make the dot very fine.

I have had a full very good DRO for my mill for about a year - still in its box - as I just use aids like that and remember to allow for back-lash and I find the repeatability and accuracy very good.

I must get that DRO fitted - just in case!!
