Great addition to my lathe. Unbeatable Price.

I bought this DRO for my Grizzly G4003g 12x36 Lathe. After a polite email exchange, giving my lathe's dimensions to the vendor, the DRO arrived, undamaged, about 9 days later. The user manual is very poorly translated from Chinese, and I couldn't figure out how to change between radius/diameter mode. So, I emailed the vendor to ask.
