I bumped into a thread that included a post from someone offering "home brewed" touch probes for around $100. Anyone know where/who that is? I can't find the thread now and don't even know if it was on CNCZone. This age thing is beginning to effect my brain!!!.............
Super X3. 3600rpm. Sheridan 6"x24" Lathe + more. Three ways to fix things: The right way, the other way, and maybe your way, which is possibly a faster wrong way.
I just recently purchased one from him and I am very impressed with the quality of his work. Much better than i could ever hope to accomplish my self and much cheaper than a Renshaw or others. Of course, I ahven't actually tested it yet but it looks very good and mechanically it seems to function very well.

Yep, that's it. Can't believe it was in the Mach Support Forum and I couldn't find it. For $100, even if it needs TLC and a tune-up, it's a GREAT start. Glad to hear you're happy with the quality and overall look of it. I'm ordering one now!
Is there a marked for a used DeskCNC touch probe. The probe has a ruby or rubylike precious stone that touches the item to be scanned.
I appreciate any feedback on my probes. If anyone looking for info on these attached is a brochure.
