This is just to let everyone know that Steve and I have modified the Lathe
by fitting it with a Digital Readout this week.
The scales are on the Main carriage (Y axis) and the Cross slide (x axis).
If you know how to use the readout unit then please continue using the lathe
or just continue with the readings on the hand-wheels for now.

Steve will be formulating instructions for training with this addition and will
announce this in the future.

It was a fair bit of work to do this but the benefits are ease of producing 
accurate work quickly to within 0.005mm and some other usefull features;
more of which later.
