INTELLEGENT MACHINES HELPING PEOPLE
Thursday, October 13, 2011
I recently picked up this MicroMark mill. I got it off craigslist (Chicago) with a whole bunch of tooling. The cart / stand is from a hospital that also came from Craig's list.
The mill came with a DRO on the 3 axis's but the goofy rubber plugs that plug into the scales were so loose that the readout would not work half the time.
So, like any other enthusiast I just cut them off and soldered the wires directly to the circuit board.
Once they were soldered I assembled the units back together and I put some silicon in the pockets to seal them.
Here is a great site explaining how the scales work and the wiring if you ever want to build your own DRO.
