    If you're using them to make a hole to support the work with a centre, then that's what you need. However for making the mark to center a normal drill, spot drills are better as they're more robust.

    DRO for the milling Machine is only 2 axis as been told that as the column is round one can't be fitted. One of the first projects will be fitting one to it....

    Items in addition to the above I'm getting are DTI on a magnetic base and a boring bar set. Already have centre drill bits and some tooling from the old lathe. Should suffice for now and anything else needed can just be bought as and wheen needed.

    No chance of swapping the 2-axis DRO display on the mill for a 3-axis version to make adding a third scale easier? If nothing else, you could fit a third scale on the quill although I realise that this is a second-best.

    I've asked this yesterday funnily enough although talking to the guys at work they want me to CNC the mill ASAP as well as the small Seig C4 lathe. Today is measuring the lathe for fitting steppers and drawing up mounting brackets in CAD (Alibre Design 3D which I'm learning)
