  • Shooting Star digital readouts

    Hi everybody! I hope your all doing well, and
    have had a happy Thanksgiving.
    I just got the Y axis of a Shooting Star
    Technology, digital readout installed on my
    Acer lathe's cross slide.
    I put a piece of 2.250 shafting in the chuck, took a light cut, measured the piece after turning, Inputed the measurement into
    the digital readout, pushed the diameter button, and pushed the Y button again, and took a .050 cut, the digital readout, said
    2.200, another .050 cut, and it read 2.150, and so on.
    What fun, no more missed measurements for me, and no more squinky eyes trying to see the difference between the metric and english scales on the dials.
    I use digital readouts every day at work
    the one I use on my mill is really nice, and
    works very well and has more features than I can use. I'm sure glad someone came out with a digital readout I can afford.
