IF YOUR SCALES ARE NOT READING PROPERLY, PLEASE SEE PAGE B1 AND START FROM THERE, YOU NEED TO CHANGE THE DRO TO MATCH YOUR HIGH RESOLUTION CROSS SLIDE SCALE AS SHOWN ON PAGE B10. Cross Slide scale resolution needs to be set to .001, and Bed/Carriage Scale Resolution is to be set to .005.  (Go through the rest of the setup first, select Lathe, and No. of Axis is 2, Select your language, etc)

Be sure that you have the Cross Slide scale plugged in to the TOP plug in the back of the display, and the Bed/Carriage Scale in to the plug just below the cross slide. This is not optional, plug them in as stated for it to work properly.

Following these guidelines above will assure that you are up and running quickly.
