Longitudinal DRO fitting.

Continued from my previous post 'DRO fitting'.
I also fitted a DRO to the bed for longitudial measurement. The only parts I had to manufacture were spacers to fit behind the standard clamps, a coolant splash guard and a reader bracket which is attached to the carriage. This bracket is in two pieces, I opted to run the bracket below the DRO and then up to the reader so as to stop coolant dribbling down the bracket and onto the reader and bar.
