      Some explanation:

      The board is intended to translate the rather inconvenient
      -1.5 v logic levels to the IO levels of the arduino. The
      arduino would do the sampling, coincidence detection,
      decoding, etc and send the readings to the PC. I did this
      first pass board because I've never had much luck with
      comparators on a breadboard. They tend to oscillate
      and other nasty stuff from the parasitic capacitance.
      A final board might have the uP built in.

        I believe the price list is current.
        Email Echo direct for a quote.

        Activity was inked to group buys for the Sumatech DRO so goes in waves.

        The price list is from 2012 and there
        doesn't
        seem to be much going on there.  They still
        around?

        Join the Ditron-echo Yahoo group, Echo (young lady) provides
        glass scales and DRO's at reasonable prices, shipped to
        you.
        There are prices in the files section of the group.

        We have some surprise funding in our
        shop budget
        (!!!!) and I'm thinking of getting a DRO for my
        big mill.



        It's a 20 year old Rutland Tool brand, made in
        Taiwan so I'm
        guessing it's a relabeled RF.



        I don't have time to mess with something that
        requires a lot of
        modifications or I'd build one from scratch
        myself.



        Any thoughts on the Fagor Innova series like the
        T10358 (12x30)? 
        Other decent brands?  Places to buy?



        I see Grizzly.com has this for $1095, but I
        haven't looked around
        for prices yet.
