I want to put a DRO on my Hartford 9x42 mill, which is basically a Bridgeport copy, does anyone know off hand what size scales to use? I thought I might save a bit of time if I can just do the shopping without having to go and work it out first.
I am also open to suggestions on brands of DRO.
Thanks
Will

Well, First how far does your mill go in the X direction?
And how far does it go in the Y direction?
And how far does it go in the Z direction?
Thats the size of scales you need. Or rather, the travel, the scales will be a little longer. But Generaly you buy a DRO by the travel, not the mounting size since mounting is usally a custom solution anyway.

Thanks for the reply Black Moons, i realise all that, I was just trying to save myself a bit of time in the event someone knew what size already.
