Product Description

About the Z-axis Digital Readout Handwheel Package

For those who purchase a P/N 8200 2-axis lathe DRO and later decide to add a vertical milling column, this kit adds a DRO handwheel and cable to the milling column to provide a Z-axis readout on the column. It is plugged into the electronics box that comes with the lathe DRO, as it already has a Z-axis input. In this configuration, the lathe’s leadscrew axis, which was called the Z-axis is now plugged into the Y-axis input and the column becomes the new Z-axis. (In machining, the axis of the spindle is normally called the Z-axis, regardless of which direction it moves.)


The improper use of machine tools and their accessories can result in serious injury. Before using this tool, thoroughly read the instructions and make sure you understand its proper and safe use.
