Fabricating iGaging DRO for 15" Planer

01-10-2012 09:27 PM by rawdawgs50 | 5 comments »

I wanted my planer to have digitized measuring but did not want to spend a couple hundred doing this. I recently purchased a Digital Read Out …DRO…from iGaging. I got it on amazon for $33.50 plus free shipping. When I received the unit, the lcd screen protector was cracked. The LCD protector is actually glass. I contacted iGaging and they responded very fast to my email, and after a few questions they shipped out another unit the next business day. Even though I live in Florid...

More Accurate & Quicker

Traditionalists will roll their eyes and mumble bad words seeing a marking gauge with a battery.

The real benefit is having the linear gauge included so the distance does not have to be set using a ruler o...

Well, even though I‘ve had a Wixey Protractor( http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/549 ) that is dead on 100% accurate, measured against all my engineering squares and then some, At only $15 on sale, I could not resist picking one of these up.Why you might ask. Well, The Wixey even though is accurate; it has two main shortcomings. One, it is impossible to lock it in place. Second, it does not have the hold function, which should have been incorporated since it will not lock tight.On the other hand...

just purchased and installed the igaging MAGNETIC REMOTE DIGITAL ROUTERLIFT, bought this from Eagle America, it was about $20 cheaper than the Wixey, can’t say it is better, I have not tried the Wixey, but thought I would try this one.the installation instructions were not the best I have seen, but after studying them it was easy enough to figure out, the worst part was having to drill and tap holes in my Jessem router lift so it could be mounted, I broke one tap, so I had to move the p...
