HI
Looks like i maybe replacing my original Zaxis glass scale with a import from china. The current unit is a acu-rite 10um unit for the 4.5 inch travel of the spindle. The replacement I am looking at is a 150 mm 5um unit.
Big question is can Linuxcnc handle the change in accuracy and will my bridgeport clone become more accurate at the same time??

Thanks
Jim
