  • New Sino DRO on my mill

    Hi guys:

    My DRO is installed except for some cable beautification, I've already used the "Bolt Circle" function which is awesome, and often use the built-in calculator.

    Questions:
    1/ What is the difference between "Multifunctional milling machine readout" and "Universal milling machine readout"? These are setup options not described in the manual.
    2/ When it wakes up it displays ALS which I'm also not sure about.

    Comments:
    - As has been my experience, the Chinese get the most important stuff right but fall down on some things, like the manual, and crappy fasteners.
    - The readout is big and bright and nicely housed in a metal enclosure. The scales are robust and come with plenty of armoured/shielded cable.
    - Mounting bracketry is white metal, not necessarily square, but machines easily.
    - Installation was a colossal fiddle but well worth the trouble.


    I got this 6"+ x 14"+, 2 axis DRO for $449. If you want one, check out Accusizetools.ca. David is a really nice guy to deal with.

    multi versus universal i have no idea I paid no attention to that when I installed mine,,,, re ALS I don't know mine [all 3 of them] say ALE it's just saying absolute.

      Mike, thanks for the review. A DRO is one thing i haven't added to the shop, yet.....being incredibly cheap is part of the issue but I still have mood swings between Newall, Cheap, Newall, Cheapo....,getting feedback helps

          I'm a moron.
          It says ALE.

            From what I've seen, you don't have room for a DRO, unless you get rid of an oilcan.
