Super glue it to a sacrificial piece of stock, do the milling and drilling, apply a little heat to get it off, then use some acetone to clean it up.

Re: Considering a DRO

The other nice thing about DRO's is that they are accurate, even on worn out machines. They measure movement not turns of a screw.

Re: Graziano SAG12

What am I missing? I don't see a rectifier on the 24V control circuit. I thought it was 24VAC. I do see the rectifier on the 30/32 volt clutch circuit.
