    Like smokediver576 I ordered Pete's nifty little pendant. I've only had a day to play with it but so far it is great!

    The unit is very light and about the size of a bar of soap. If anything it is a bit too small for my fat hands. Installation of the software involves replacing two files in one of the Pathpilot directories, rebooting the controller and then plugging the pendant into an available USB port.

    As delivered, pressing the three buttons acts as though you pressed CycleStart, Feedhold and Stop on your touch screen. Turning the knobs (each button is actually a button plus rotating knob) controls Feed Override, RPM Override and Maxvel Override. Using an innovative but slightly quirkly user interface you can easily reprogram the knobs to zero a DRO, turn coolant on/off, jog, etc. I was initially confused by the user interface to reprogram things but watching the video at made operation obvious. Configuration changes are retained even if the unit is powered off. Definitely a keeper!

    It comes with a small handle for hanging the pendant. The photo shows it hanging from the bracket that I made years ago for my currently useless (with Pathpilot) VistaCNC pendant.
