Thread: Exhibitions 2020
03/08/2020 15:54:43

Not a surprise, but just received this from Meridienne Exhibitions via Facebook:

We regret to announce that given the current situation with Coronavirus we have taken the decision to cancel the 2020 Midlands Model Engineering Exhibition due to be held at the Warwickshire Event Centre.

Like many other organisers we have been watching the criteria for events unfold. Venues are only currently planned to reopen from 1st October subject to successful outcomes of the mass gathering pilot studies. There are also ongoing government restrictions in place for the continuing management of this pandemic which are subject to change at any time.

We are positive that considerable social distancing measures will need to be in place regardless. We feel these would have a significant impact on our ability to present the event to the normal size and format for everyone’s enjoyment. Therefore, we have come to the sensible and responsible decision to cancel the event until October 2021.

We are aware that our loyal supporters will be disappointed with this decision but it would not be right to organise an event that does not meet the high expectations that have been set over the last 42 years.

The 2021 show dates are confirmed as the 14th – 17th October again at the Warwickshire Event Centre.

Any visitors who have purchased an advance ticket already will be refunded directly.

We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Thread: WM16B DRO - 2 or 3 axis?
24/11/2019 21:13:21

Thanks for all your replies and advice. I think I'll aim for a kit with a 3-axis display, and then I have the option to fit the Z-axis later on as Dave suggests.

Hi all - first post though I have been lurking round here for a while!

I'm fairly new to the ME hobby, and have recently acquired a Warco WM16B milling machine.

I'm considering fitting a DRO kit from M-DRO - given that the mill already has an inbuilt digital display provided for the quill feed, are there any advantages in fitting a Z-axis sensor and 3-axis DRO, or does experience suggest that the type of z-axis display fitted to chinese mills of this level will be adequate? Is it simply a question of deciding what level of accuracy I can live with?
