The Stand is Completed

Sieg SX3 on stand

The stand is finished, well, until we decide to make some improvements.  The stand has small iron casters to make it easy to move, but also has leveling screws to level and lock the machine in place.

Now we await the arrival of the digital readout (DRO) system.  This consists of a display units and three glass scales.  The linear glass scales are packaged in aluminum spars that protect the scale and keep it free from dust and dirt..  The readout device has a resolution of 0.005mm, which is about 0.0002″!
