Meister BC-10L DRO

        Well I took the plunge and add a DRO system to my Grizzly G4003G metal lathe and could not be happier!
        After many hours of searching the internet and all the machining groups I decided to go with the Meister DRO
        system made in Singapore (You can read more about this in the Comments section)
        I was not able to find much information on adding a DRO system to the Grizzly 12 x 36 metal lathe so I've
        included details and pictures on how I installed mine below.
