There is a 35-706 and a 35-706P. There are two main differences.
I would like to suggest to iGaging to please make it a bit more clear which one I am getting.
I have 2 of each and really like the units very much. Both are excellent units.
The first is the set vs preset button. On the 35-706 the button on the far right is the set button is used to change the fractional inch from 32nds, 64ths, or 128ths of an inch while displaying fractional inch. On the 35-706P the button on the far right is called preset. This preset has an interesting function and is used precisely for machines that cannot zero out e.g. planers. The preset is not really hard to use but can be a bit confusing as to how it works and it can be applied. The preset really just means when you press the zero button the display will display the preset value rather than all zeros. so if the preset is say .750 or 3/4 inch then adjust your planer (or other machine) until the stock or cut is at that preset value then press the zero button. Now the display will show your preset of .750 or 3/4 and your machine is set. The preset can be + or - and can be set from -99.999 to 00.000 to 99.999.
The other is the display. The 35-706 can display in 3 modes decimal, mm, and fractional inch. The 35-706P displays says in/mm and displays in 2 modes decimal inch and fractional inch at the same time or mm.
I would suggest the 35-706P for planers and drum sanders mainly for the preset function. I like the decimal inch and fractional inch at the same time on the display.
I also do like the 35-706 for its ability for me to set the fractional inches from 32nds, 64ths, or 128ths of an inch.
If you're doing aerospace, or submicro, this isn't it. If you're making fixtures, or parts for machines, it works well. You DO have to plan and execute your installation to protect it from chips, dust, and fluids. But, you were going to do that, anyway.
The batteries last a good long time, and are easily bought and replaced. The small size of the readout panel is a big plus.
Spend the saved money on some quality measuring tools.
Still working well. Makes drilling hole circles easier, if you have a machinist's calculator. Drilling those tiny channels in miniature steam engines is now a snap, where it was agony, before.
Hmmm. Install them on a lathe? Let's start considering that. Seen a few articles.
Still going strong. Batteries have yet to die. Bought a card of 12 of these batteries at Ace Hardware for under $2.00. Energizers are almost $4 apiece! Shop around.
One annoyance is operator carelessness. I keep forgetting to turn off the display. The more diligent you are, the longer the batts last. But then, you knew that. The display WON'T turn itself off.
Addictive. Could not go back to my previous way of doing milling.
The precautions on installation have worked. The slides and beams are still very clean.
I bought a second iGaging DigiMAG 6" DRO to use with my INCRA Mast-R-Lift-II Router Lift. The installation was pretty easy, but you will need a 3mm tap to do it. I bought the Irwin Tools 2712- 3 Piece Set - 3.0 mm - 0.50 mm because the holes drilled in the top plate should not go all the way through so at least 2 taps are required, one tapered and a bottoming. I drilled and tapped 2 holes in the router clamping piece and did the same for 2 holes in the backside of the main plate and used the 3mm screws that come with the DigiMAG to attach the scale to the plate and the slider to the clamping piece. Be very careful not to over torque the tap when you tap the holes in the plate. It's very easy to strip a thread in aluminum when tapping a blind hole.
The advantage of using a DRO in a router table is that you can zero the readout at any point and then make your cutter bit height adjustments from there. You also have the option to use decimal inches, mm or fractional inches with the push of a button.
I've had a Jet 15" planer (similar to JET 708538 JWP-15DX: 15 CS Planer with Quick Change Knives, but without the quick change knives) for about 14 years and recently I installed new knives and adjusted the cutter head, feed rolls and chip breaker. After the adjustments, the thickness across a 12" board is within 0.001" from edge to edge and the planed surface is like glass.Read more ›
It holds the position ready when the display powers down; it comes back at the same place every time when you tap the power button. A big relief for me!
