Default Grizzly T21577 0-6" Digital Quill Scale

Grizzly offers a #T21577, a 0-6" digital quill scales with a remote readout, for about $25. I ordered 2 of them, one for the Jet JVM 836 mill and the Franken-Mill. I ordered them on Monday afternoon, and it arrived on Wednesday morning. The kit is pretty basic, the scale, the display, and a couple of different brackets, no instructions, but there isn't really anything to guess about. It took me about 2 hours to install it, which also included the removal of a broken 10-32 tap.


1 - the T21577 boxed kit
2 - the kit
3 - the mounting location
4 - brackets mounted
5 - the kit installed

6 - quill retracted
7 - retracted reading of zero
8 - quill full extended
9 - extended reading of 5.062
10 - the slide attachment


This is listed for drill presses, routers, mills and any tool, needing accurate adjustments. We shall see if it works ok, price seems right. Track was too long, and was easily cut to fit the application.

Looks like it is well worth the money. Report back after you have used it a coupla weeks.

I'm in the process of installing two 6 inchers and one 24 on Mildred - X, Y and Z.
I have Y & Z done. Probably do the cross slide tonight.
Took a little more figgering because I could not use the brackets that came with 'em without some modifications.

Cutter,

In the process of doing the X, Y and Z axis on both the Jet and the Franken-Mill, will post pictures of the install. Hopefully these will work out for what I'm doing. I'm looking forward to your thread and pictures, Mildred is becoming quite a late bloomer.

Looks good. I am thinking of the same thing for my newly acquired mill. Does it cover the depth setting thumb wheel on the quill? In the pics it looks like it might be hard to set that now.

No, it still easy to get to the thumb wheel.

Maybe at this point, Mildred isn't decent, Cutter in all good conscience, couldn't show her like that.
