Over the course of a few days, and with the gracious help of our alumni, EDT was able to install the Acu-Rite 200S on our trusty old Bridgeport J-head mill. The installation included two optical encoders for the table, one for the quill, and the control unit. After everything was installed, the mill was trammed and checked for repeatability and accuracy using a dial indicator. Many thanks to the UIC College of Engineering for their continued support!
No more reading dials and counting rotations for us!
