Learn how to make a Tachometer for your machine
In this video, Chris explains how he made a tachometer for his precision drill press. The spindle on this machine runs at 11,000 and this tachometer can easily handle that speed. Utilizing a 3D printer, the housing can be made quickly and easily. The tachometer is run on a PICO, and uses the Waveshare 1.28" round display and an RPR-220 photo reflective sensor.

About 20 years ago I produced a Woodworking Magazine that was distributed on DVD and contained Video content. The format was very much like a television show with stories on various subjects.
