  • Digital Linear Scale Mount For Lathe

    I made these pieces to attach an 8" linear scale to the carriage and bed on my lathe x-axis. I wanted to be able to install and remove the scale without using tools. I glued in magnets to hold the parts in place on the lathe.

    The theory is good and you did a great job making the brackets...But... Unless the scale is an "absolute" model, it won't be accurate after you move the carriage twice. Been there, done that.
