I made a cheap DRO for my CJ18a mini lathe using 4 cheap Aldi workzone digital calipers, an interface using an Arduino nano and a cheap Android tablet running the TouchDRO app.
I have intended to post about it for a while and todays post about cross slide dial calibrations on the same lathe has prompted me to actually do it.
I can’t claim any originality in this - I have followed ideas from various others on the internet and based the circuit on the one posted by Les Jones on here.
I think it cost about £80 in total.
I am quite pleased with it as a beginner.
