as the scale is flush to the casting and that is canted inwards, I need an adjustable angled bracket. Still to do: slots for the screws to mount it to the carriage. This way it will have adjustment in two axes. The angle was transferred directly from the angle between the bed and the outer face of the scale.

The Y axis DRO proved useful spacing the holes and slots fron center.
