years of crud, I had to remove the DRO's scale and inadvertantly
pulled the sender / reader apart. The reader had a springy wire with
a ball on it that held the electronics etc that actually read the
glass scale. It was easy enough to put that back together and nothing
appeared to be broken.
When I reassemble the reader and scale, what do I do to position the
sender correctly with regard to the scale? Do I just get it close
enough to read or should it ride on the glass scale? Should it touch
the glass at all? The "adjustments" are pretty crude, so I'm guessing
the little flat square reader should ride on the glass, but with the
price of these things, it's better to wait and ask first. Should I
clean the scale and sender while I have it apart? What to clean it
with - Windex? Alcohol?
