  • Parts For Old Mitutoyo Dro Parts ? Or Off Brand Recommendations ?

    Anybody have any idea if there is a place that might have parts for an old DRO ? My X scale has gone out and the company does not have parts for it cause of its age. Or has anybody had decent luck with any of the Off Brand Dro's ? I cannot afford $1'500 Dro right now. The model I have is , Mitutoyo GML-3705-WEC My mill is a Jet JVM-949 Thanks for any input offered. Also, can a 40" reader be used on a 49" table as long as you do not need to run to either end of table ? Thanks again

    If you have the 40" scale set the table stops so you dont try to pull the guts out of the scale and use it. Ken

      Hi,

      DROPRO's get a lot of popular mention here, They sell decently priced DRO's from China and offer good post purchase support.

      You can easily use a shorter scale on longer table travel, just be sure to set your hard stops to prevent over travel. This is a good idea even if you have the correct length scales, 'cause poop happens.

        I really appreciate your input. I figured out how to search for old post and I think I have narrowed down my choices to, Jenix , Sino , or Dro Pros . At least it is getting closer to making a decision. I also think I am going to try to add the third readout. I am far from being a machinist, and my best friend and mentor passed away suddenly a year ago. So now I have to ask all my dumb questions on the net. Anyway, age is not always a friend. Ya'll be safe , have a Merry Christmas and a great New Year. I will be shopping. Dennis

          Hi,

          Ain't no dumb question. And this place is a good one to ask when you don't know. Lots of wide knowledge here.

            I have a extra 2 axis display & some scales but I'm not a dealer & we can't sell on here, I've used a chinese & it seemed to work fine. I haven't tried this company but the price is right https://www.aliexpress.com/item/free...999.264.KUsyXr

              I keep leaning towards Dro Pros, haven't heard anything bad about them. Thanks for the heads up.
