A DRO for the Deckel

I am somewhat of an analogue person. I like manually operated stuff. I drive a manual car, like manually wound watches and have yet to convert to electronic shift on any of my bikes. Cables do pretty well. However I decided that it was time to bring my Deckel FP1 milling machine into the 21st century. One of the challenges in working with a relatively small machine was that I didn’t want the accessories to overwhelm the machine itself. So I decided to use the same bracket that the light mounts to for the swing arm, just to reduce the number of things bolted to the machine. I think it works, but only time will tell.
