Initial mounting of the Z Axis read head. I did not take into account the scale cover and had to move the sensor to the top side of the bracket which necessitated a spacer being added to the mix. If I get really ambitious I may make a replacement vertical bracket to replace the too short one and the spacer block. Then again, how many people are going to be looking back there??
This was shot prior to the final machining of the upper ends of the brackets, required to get full travel of the cross slide. The back of the lathe is not truly flat so some shims had to be added to get the scale straight.
