It works very well and is accurate.

Has various mounting brackets and decent length cord to actually wound the readout in a convenient spot.

I've always wanted digital read outs for my Harbor Freight mini mill. However up to now they cost more than the mill and didn't account for backlash. The Quint iGaging DigiMAG Magnetic Remote Digital Readouts are an elegant solution. For about $100 total I installed them on the X,Y and Z axis. You have to make custom brackets but the plans are available from FigNoggle Design ([...]). No more counting revolutions. No more mistakes. I anchor the magnetic readouts to a sheet of steel screwed to a wooden board screwed to the mill's bench. Accuracy is .001 inch.

Thease are a great value. I built my own mounting brackets to keep them in tight to the machine and they are just as good as the ones that cost 800 - 1000 bucks.

Just finished mounting these on my X2 mill. They seem to be able to do the job. They'd be a five star if they were down sized slightly.

Got three of these from Carol at Quint graphics. She was very helpful and responded immediately to all questions, and got them to me in two days from across the country (They're in CA, I'm in CT). I've been cutting and modifying them to fit my X2 mini-mill, and they've been working great! Very accurate and repeatable.

Very good for the purpose and the price. Bring other option of connection together. No major issue so far, works as it should be...

Currently using three for a drill press X-Y Table: X - 12", Y - 6", Z - 6".

These little devices have taken my low-level $200 X-Y Table to the lower limits of attainable accuracy on my drill press. Although the table screws have considerable backlash, which are impracticable to correct, I am able to approach low single mill tolerances and repeatability with good operator practices. I modified the rail mounting for better rigidity and range.

I am adding a third DRO to the drill press quill for better Z axis control.

The only negatives, which I will not derate the product for, are:
1- Power On/Off needs an inactive timeout (~30-60 min)
2- the 4-pin mini-USB cable - a poor choice since there are no adapters or right angle cables which would make a multi DRO display setup cleaner and more compact (micro-USB would be much better)
3- an external power connector to allow multiple DRO's (e.g. 3: X,Y,Z) on a single power supply and connected to the tool, all on all off. Hint: how about using the more common micro-USB connections.

For the price, and then some, this is a pretty cool widget. Don't make yourself too crazy testing the accuracy --- it's very accurate. And deliberately "speeding" it on the rail didn't fool it, either. (I think if you ran this fast enough to knock it out, you're probably going to kill yourself with your equipment, anyway.)

It took some finagling (a la band saw)and some bending and filing on the mounting bracket, but I now have a zero-slip digital readout for the lead on my Bolton mill/lathe. Not that the Bolton is an ultra-precise machine --- but it's a lot easier to deal with now. (I flattened the sensor bracket and cut a slot to match the leadscrew nut carrier, and mounted the end brackets to the frame. It's out of the way (well, the sensor box is a bit bulky) and I get full travel from tailstock to faceplate with no interference.)

I had NO trouble cutting the strip to a custom length. I don't know why they don't mention that you can do that --- it's nice to be able to fit it in a tight installation.

If I could figure out how to squeeze this onto the cross-slide, I'd buy another one!

These scales are great for the price. Top that off with the remote display capability and its makes it even better!
These work well and seem less sensitive to noise then the Chinese scales. This might be because they use 3volts instead
of the 1.5volts that those other scales use. They have good repeatability and resolution. I used these on a Mini-mill
and they are great for that on three axises! They will get used with a ShumaTech DRO but are good on their own as well.

I highly recommend these scales and would gladly buy them again! Thank you IGaging for the great product!
