I am wondering if it's possible to leave the carriage scale open ended with a DRO ?
I have a monarch lathe with a 20" swing,10' bed and 11" cross slide travel and have found out how expensive a 8' scale is nevermind 10'
Since most lathe work happens in the first 2-3' could I have a working DRO with a 2' or 3' scale on the carriage and proper 11" scale on the cross slide while leaving the right end of the carriage scale open?
 
What manufacturer of dro is it? I dunno the exchange rate but you could probably get a newalls system for the price for thar scale

Regard
John
