It looks like a well designed kitchen. You stand, or sit, there and everything is in arms reach. I am envious since I now use two stools and walk the three to four yards between them every few minutes.

There is no such thing as a stupid question.

The mill has successfully been digitised! The scales were fitted using existing holes in the machine, to do this i ordered a longer than needed scale for the x axis which allowed brackets to be used to mount the scales. For the Y axis, a piece of steel bar was mounted to the mill using an M6 countersunk bolt and the scale was then mounted to that.

For the quill DRO i cut up some old callipers and a piece of angle and araldited it in place, im surprised how nicely this worked out
