I got the box today, and am already halfway into building the contents. No balsa dust here, but birch and pine dust.

Cap'n, have a lookie at the holes where the tabs go from the top of the box into the sides, and from the drawer pulls and the drawer fronts. The box side holes are a bit undersize, and the glue drawer holes are a bit oversize. Nothing a little imagination can't fix.

John I bought a Mitutoyo 6"digital read out for the quill and has ben great for 25 yrs, but the 3/16 numbers are getting hard for me to read now

So I stepped up a bought a new one with larger 3/8 size numbers, went into the install deal and the metal bracket they send is JUNK

So i'am going to build a super trick mounting for this DRO and send the junk parts back to them, if I can find the right person to send them too

And the mini re-set zero button is flush and hard as hell to use, what the hell is wrong with these tool designers now days [ got no smarts ] and probly don't even know what a milling machine is or what is does

No foolin' Don! this last place that promised me the werld and a dollar bill was so cheap they didn't even have the right(or newer) files for 304 stainless steel! And this is for Exide Battery company, who is putting 1300 lb battery boxes into new submarines! anyway, an ISO shop who doesn't do paperwork,and has the cheapest fowler calipers- they won't repeat .001- even with a paper wipe! made 94 buck with the printer so far!
