    Default Digital Readout for an old rockwell mill?

    I have a 21-100 rockwell mill built in 1965 and I think I would like to add a DRO. I really only need the two horizontal axis, but 3 axis would be fine. The table travel is:

    Longitudinal: 16.5"
    traverse: 6.75"
    vertical: 16.5"

    I do not necessarily need to be able to calculate bolt patterns or do any other math with the DRO. I am mostly looking for postion and the ability to tare to zero at a position. I would like +/-0.0005" but would consider +/-0.001"

    Any suggestions?

    I would recommend the guy on ebay selling Sino, he has 2 axis posted for $450 and $550 posted for a 3 axis.
    If you look at his feed back he has loads of happy customers and I have never heard a bad word about him.
    Postage is usually 7-9 days to you door and if you have a problem he will fix it right.
