Has anyone tried this stuff out or any opinions on it? Might be an answer for me to hang on to my current mill (metric) I had been looking for a Bridgeport to pop up for sale in Scotland, but so far the only one I have seen was too expensive.

The advantages there are

A: It's new and Warco seem to have fairly good reputation for after sales sevice (on here) and the price is delivered.

B: I don't have the hassle of trying to get a BP up from England, or have to travel down to view a second hand machine.

I've just bought a digiatl scale unit from Chronos - unfortunately it has no operating instructions. Can anyone tell me where I can find these? The unit has: 2 arrow buttons (up and down), and in/mm button, and ABS/INC button, a SET button and ON/OFF. I've trawled the web but can't even find out who makes these. Regards, Joe.
