Scan through this forum and you will find a couple of designs that you can create on your own. For example Who want to make a touch probe?
Please advice which is the best suitable probe available in the market which can work with my new chinese made cnc router. I searched the web and found 3 brands, one from techno works only with techno routers, other two are from Maxnc and shopbot, any idea which one is better?
Having made a little digitizing probe, where 'O' where do the wires connect to.
Are they fitted to a Z stop, to a printerport pin, or to some other component yet to be purchased by me!! . I have Mach3 installed.
Thank you so much for any info... Mike

About digitizing probe. I recomend to buy a good one , not the toy one for $90.00 I had a bad experience with that one. Its moves two milimeters before detecting the point.
You can make your own touch probe . Go to www.vinland.com/Touch-Probe.html to get an idea.
Conect to your breakboard interface on any free input . I conect it to my second parallel port interface ,to pin 11 . Do not forget to go to configuration in your mach 3 program Inputs signals, Pobe. and clik Enable , set your port number and pin number and set active high.
