Thanks Phil and John... I'm excited about the machine, which looks like an early 2020 purchase, and the DRO is something I've been thinking about...there are several out there, which vary considerably in price...any recommendations?
Thanks again,
Izzy

I bought an AccuRemote  based on the positive review of a guy on SMC whos opinion I value and have not been disappointed.  Easy to set up, and very repeatable readings even after sitting unused for weeks.  I wanted to get one with a 120V adapter because some units eat batteries, but the AccuRemote is now about 9 months old and still on the first set of batteries so that seems unnecessary at least with this brand.
