You could probably buy where you get the best deal.If you live close to Warco you may be able to pick it up directly - no carriage to pay.I have since fitted DRO's (albeit economy priced) to my X & Y axis so I can virtually forget about most of the previous, & having used them to modify the vice jaws on my bandsaw last week I found the measuring to be spot on. in all cases I check with micrometer/vernier/depth/ internal mic' /anyway, as on occasion the ' Z' axis fitted DRO has sometimes gives spurious readings.My machines are metric but if I need to use imperial, as when constructing my rear toolpost recently (Hemingway kit,usual disclaimer) the plans of which are Imp, & prior to fitting my DRO's, I simply converted by multiplying by 25.4, or dividing by same as the case may be,so working in either imp or metric should pose no probs' plus there are a plethora of conversion charts available...

Warco include delivery in the price so if you do pick up yourself negotiate the saving.
they use their own guy for delivery and I have found it a good service on 3 occasions over 20 years.
