Hi MakkyBrown
Did you ever get the serial screen to work with the "nano" it would certainly tidy the whole encoder project up.
I was thinking of rebuilding mine...Need to get rid of the "rats nest"

Not yet, upgraded to 5000cpr but working ok so haven't. (new power supply sorted the screen not starting problem). Email sent with info that might help.

Digikey has free shipping over $60aud. The clip-on ones are good but I wouldn't want to be pulling them off/on frequently if at all. The others might need a line receiver, you'll have to check the model number for what they actually are. Use a serial screen, don't bother with doc, target angle, or second screen. Add rpm. Put an emi filter on faceting machine and use decoupling capacitors + ferite magnets on encoder box/cables. Don't bother using the same screen library or fonts as Tom, way out of date.
