Both are excellent units.

I had to fabricate a mounting bracket to use this on my Jet 10" joiner/planer but once installed and zero'd in it works perfectly!

I installed it on my mini mill and it is very accurate.

There seem to be two slightly different versions of the digimag 0-6.
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.

The product was simple to install and works as advertised. It makes for far more accurate repeatable setups.

I bought this unit for a Z-axis DRO on my Grizzly knee mill. The documentation said to use the provided screws to attach the mounting plate to the back of the slider, but when I turned the slider over, there were no visible screw holes that lined up with the holes in the mounting plate. There were some round raised areas on the back of the slider, but since I had to leave for an appointment, I assumed they were just mold marks. When I finally got back to the unit, I saw that the round areas were adhesive disks covering an assortment of screw holes. It would have been nice if the installation sheet had made mention of them.

These are perfect for most home machine shops. You can get more accurate DROs or an easier setup, but for the price these cannot be beat. I have them installed on my X and Y axis on my mini mill and will soon be adding a Z axis one as well. It takes a little work to get them set up, but that's to be expected. The remote display is priceless and makes them so much easier to work with. Accuracy and repeatability is more than acceptable.

For a mini mill these are almost a mandatory upgrade. The mill's screws have quite a bit of backlash, and if you're trying to use the included dials on the handwheels you're going to have a hard time getting the accuracy you want, and it will only complicate your operations. You'll have have to deal with converting between metric and inch. With the DROs in place you don't have to worry about backlash since all the DRO cares about is where the table is located.

I installed it on my mini mill and it is very accurate. I can do more milling with less calculating.

have not installed yet, but i put batteries in place and learned the buttons. it will do what i want it to do on the y axis of my mini milling machine. the price is right. the accuracy is good enough for my purposes. i would recommend this to whomever wants these for the same reasons i did.

UPDATE 30 March 2014:

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.

ORIGINAL REVIEW:

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.
