I ordered the T23012 DRO from Grizzly. They did not have a recommended DRO for the G0453Z so I decided to take one for the team. The reader mounted to the power switch post very nicely with a couple drilled and tapped holes.
The readout is wired and has magnets on the back. I have some wiremold that I may use to protect the path
once I am happy with everything. It also comes with some brackets and a wall mounting sort of fixture so, pretty versatile in that respect. The one missing thing that Wixey has down cold is the calibration. On this build I jet left enough of the scale beam above the maximum height of the planer to allow calibration.
This is just the test build so I will dress up the wooden block or maybe paint it black or whatever.

The readout allows you to change the change increment from 32's to 64's to 128's. I think 64ths should be fine but I'll report back after I make the thing a little more elegant.
