The display housing is to be made from a 1″ thick block of Aluminum.
Shown here ready to be attacked by my Tom Senior M1 mill.
A few hours and many chips later… this is now complete and mounted on the Taig mill.
Buttons have been recessed into the front panel along with some 3mm clear acrylic to cover the display.
Ready for testing. (still have that blocky font – still on the list to modify)
Here’s the Taig with it’s new DRO.
The Taig has a few modifications from standard. Single to 3-phase VSD /motor and ER16 spindle.
Lead screw cover still to be re-installed. This will need some modification due to the installation of X & Y axis sensor mounts shown below.
The magnetic strips are mounted in 16mm U channel. This provides protection for the strips against swarf/chips.
