      There was also a box for sale at $150 that interfaces scales. built and
      ready to go. For my own needs the straight readouts would be fine. If it
      doesn't fill a need there isn't much point. If I can get what I need for
      $80 and the accuracy is at all reasonable, there isn't much point. Has
      anyone tried the cheap remote reading scales? It would be somewhat
      entertaining writing the code and finishing this up, but I'm past the
      age where I would do it just to prove I can. I'm thinking of buying a
      scale or two to try and not sure which type I should go with.

        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.
