I have noticed a question come up in several online forums about how to mount a digital readout to an open-ended drum sander. I made a quick video to show one mounting solution on a JET 22-44 Plus, using a Wixey WR550 Remote Planer Readout. It really ends up being a rather straightforward mount, and though the DRO is not perfect, it is a very handy addition to the machine and it’s worth the relatively small investment, IMHO.

Here’s a picture of mine on my Jet/Performax 16/32.

I really enjoy having a DRO on the drum sander. Actually on all my tools.
