Phase 1 of project DRO complete. I got a cheep DRO off of ebay for the tailstock. I could have used one building the tap guides. Don't know what system I'll go with for the carriage and cross slide yet.
You have seen my install and all I can say it is very rarely that interference is an issue, only when I use the 6" four jaw chuck. I'm thinking about a 5" four jaw that the cross slide scale will fit under. Vevor has a 5" 3 jaw for $82 plus I will need a 6" adapter plate for $70.
