Hi All,

I was lucky enough to receive a 3 axis DRO and one 200mm scale to fit on to my Warco VMC. I need to buy the remaining 2 scales (400mm and 600mm) but all the usual sources are either out of stock or double expensive!

Does anyone know where they can be sourced reasonably cheaply? I'm just a hobbyist with a limited budget (read second child due in the next 2 weeks!) so don't want to spend the earth.

Many Thanks,

Don't buy the second child a silver egg cup, spoon or serviette ring, buy a DRO scale !

All DROs do not use the same connectors. Could be expensive?

Without knowing exactly what scales you need, difficult to advise.

UK Vevor have a good deal on basic 5um glass scales for sino dro & clones at the moment. Ordered a 2 axis set on Sunday for WM16, delivered today! (usual disclaimers etc).
