    Thanks Peter. I'll have a look around as well. With all the LED displays around, I'd have expected that it would be easy to source.

    Cheers,

    Peter

    The most difficult bit is lining up the existing mounting holes on the mill head. On my will they were all hand drilled on various angles. My backup plan was to drill new mount holes, hidden under the orange panel. For that though I'd have to take the mill head off the mill to use the drill press, otherwise they would be as out of alignment as the original ones.

    Hi all,

    I was playing around with the new touch today. I made a new "short" cable to run to the socket on the front panel.

    Nice addition. Does it disable the spindle once the probe is plugged in? ;-)

    Interestingly, as soon as I plugged the cable in, I thought "That's going to make a mess if the spindle starts!"

    No it doesn't. If I used a 4 pole connector on the PCB I could detect when the cable is plugged in, and with a bit of circuitry use it to disable the VFD.

    I'm not going to put the effort to design that in. Well not until I start the spindle with the probe in and wreck everything.

    Cheers,

    Peter

    After a bit more thought on the matter, I'm going to add it in.

    Awwww, what fun is that!?! You're supposed to learn these things the hard way like I love to do.

    I like the fact he implemented a good idea that really started as a joke. Safety if cheaply attainable is best. I might even be a consumer of another of his products ;-)

    Yep, and the safety interlocks you don't have to think much about are the best kind. That's why I like this site. I'd likely never think of that either until a mishap enlightened me.
