I got one in a shop auction, 8", never out of the box. It is marked STM and made in China. It seems fairly well built. I got it to put on my mill/drill X-axis, but the setup eludes me. The end brackets have holes and are pretty straight forward, but the back of the travelling digital readout head has 2 small tapped holes. I'm not sure of the connection here. I guess it must be attached to a bracket on the mill/drill and the ends on the table, but it as only an 8" travel.If the table travel is longer, I assume I must design the brackets to be movable to encompass that extra travel. Can some kind person here give me a few ideas on this subject or point me in the right direction, a websight perhaps?
