Rich, Craig points well taken. I will rethink all this and do
some investigating of linear scales. Being basically lazy
I was exploring options that are out there.
Thanks for your time!

Bob,
Have  look at "Shumatec" for display kits. Our's are really old and still working.
I don't use mine anymore but a friend is still using his on his lathe after 10 years.
I'll see if  I can get more info.  Can do a three axis machine for around  $250.

Did you build the boards or did you purchase them
already populated?
Thanks

Got the kit which had all the components, the board, and a case with the mask. Just had to solder the components to the board and cutout the case for the mask.
