|Thread: M-DRO on SX2.7|
Snap. The 10V has been on the backburner for a while.

Sorry for the pics on the side. Anyone know how to rotate?

I used one of the supplied plates to support the reader head. This was then mounted on a piece of angle that fits to the existing swarf guard mounting holes. I will mount the Y axis this week.
I have some pics but dont know how to add them at the moment. once I find out how I will post them.
I have the magnetic version as well. I have not built up much metal stock yet so have sent off for some aluminium to play with. I would prefer a fixed head myself.
I am in the process of installing an M-DRO setup onto my SIEG SX2.7 mill. I have managed to get the X axis on but am struggling a bit with the Y axis installation. Does anyone have any pics of their Y axis installation on an SX2.7
Have a fixed reader head or a fixed scale?

|Thread: Rotary Table Quest|
Thank you all. I will just have to wait until they are in stock somewhere. Vertex or Soba.
|Thread: Stuart 10V Build Log - Complete Beginner...|
Thank you Jason. Strange how it is missed on both documents.
What is the thread size for the drain holes? I cannot find any reference to them on the drawing or in the booklet.
|Thread: Rotary Table Quest|
I am looking for a Soba 6" rotary table and a chuck adapter plate. Everywhere seem to be out of stock. Does anyone have a secret source or can offer advise on a suitable alternate that is in stock?
|Thread: Slot saw speed|
It is a tapered hole 2mm to 4mm over a 20mm length.
Thanks all. Need to order some more blades. Is 40T too course or OK for mild steel?
I have just bought a slot saw blade and arbor from ARC and am quite surprised to find that the key way in the blade is to small for the arbor key. When I queried this it appears that this is common. You have to either open out the key way in the blade or machine down the key in the arbor. Surely in this day and age if you sell paired products they should fit.
Anyway onto the question. What is a good starting speed when using a slotting saw. I have managed to dull mine after only 2 light (.2mm) cuts. I have a 50x0.7x13x40T HSS blade cutting into 25mm mild steel tube. I do not think that 0.2mm is too deep or am I to be corrected?
|Thread: Understanding Digital Subscriptions|
Yes thanks Jason
I am now in the archive where I want to be. Just finding where your milling series starts.
Thanks for your help and patience.
I finally found the subscription details in an email buried in the junk folder. I used that but it now says that the subscription is not active. If they want a subscription number then they should change the page and not ask for an ORDER number.
I got the subscription on ketans advice to read your milling articles.
I don't have a subscription number. Neither email from my payment details a subscription number only an order number.
I agree that there should be one somewhere.
