I'm not wanting to go big with this, don't want to turn a fun thing into to much work but we'll see were it leads
once you get used to using the DRO, you'll find you can't live without it. Just speeds things up a lot. Specially when setting up shoulder lengths and cutting grooves and internal things you can't see. The one for the O.D. is nice, but just never relied on it all that much. (just enough to get me pretty close to a final finish cut.
If your new lathe didn't come with a spray mist can, then get one! I was always a flood guy till a buddy put me onto them.
