Mach Dro's as calculator to dro input.
« on: September 28, 2011, 11:00:44 PM »
OK I must have been asleep when did THAT sneak in. You can pick the dro then hit the +sign and a number and it adds it to the DRO value same with * and / but NOT -

Iam not sure I like that idea I found it by accident. My fat fingers hit the / above the 8 on the keypad and the dro divided by 8.

CAN you turn that OFF????

HUM surprise surprise, (;-) TP

Probably been there for at least 2 years maybe 3 so looks like your fingers have just been swelling lately ;D
No way to turn it off as far as I know but it is extremely handy to me and I use it all the time on both mill and lathe. BTW you can subtract by adding a negative ;)
