Are these single axis DRO's any good? Have any of you put one on any equipment? I am thinking of adding one to my 1340 Jet on the compound slide I have a 2 axis DRO on the Z & X axis now.

I make a roller that is tapered and counting revolutions is getting old. I am able to look at the distance after it is retracted to know the right revolution to be on but the guy I am training is new and it is giving him trouble.

Here is what I am talking about.
