    Default DRO Help needed please thanks.

    I have a DRO model number D60-3V

    It’s a chinese DRO I think could be Taiwan I
    can’t remember but I bought it off ebay from
    A seller named. zsinstruments

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/3-axis-Mill...-/252136705864

    Just like this one.

    Anyway I was trying to perform the 1/2 function
    and since I don’t know the proper procedure
    but I did get it to work 1 time prior I was going
    to continue trying it.
    I hit 1/2 then Y and 1/2 again when I should
    have hit the other Y I think. Anyway it wouldn’t
    do anything so I pressed and held the 1/2
    function and it shut down and when it came
    back up, I went from having 4 places to the
    right of the decimal to having 5 places to the
    right of the decimal.
    I at first thought cool this might be ok but
    it’s not since the tenths won’t stop on an
    even number now. well I guess the tenths still
    will but I was working to a point of .3628
    and now it’s .36279-.36281 it just seems a
    bit confusing, and my mill is certainly not
    capable of holding hundred thousandths.

    It's a Ditron, just used that function yesterday.
    1.Find your first edge, zero out that axis.
    2.Find your opposite edge.
    3.Press the 1/2 button
    4.Press the X or Y button(NOT the X0 or Y0)
    5. The DRO should now show half of what it did, move the axis to zero out the display, be at center.

    As for your other issue, you have a Ditron D60, look for a manual online or I can go look for mine, where ever it is...

    Thanks for the Help. I sent the seller a question
    and he was good enough to respond with the fix.

    He says: I will need to press the mm/in. button
    right at power up while it is still beeping, Then
    press the number “2”, Then use left/right
    arrows to choose 4 dots, Then finally press
    “.” decimal point key to save and exit.

    So I guess if I had one of these on a Hardinge
    Super Precision lathe it might come in handy
    but the one I use at work just shows 4 places
    to the right of the decimal and that’s as close
    as I’ve ever needed. I’ve had to hold tolerances
    within .0005 but I never had a job asking for
    closer tolerances than that on a manual lathe.
