    $60 iirc. The rod is carbide, its plenty stiff enough and a lot more forgiving with minor probing errors.

    Hi Gravelleknives. Sorry to persist on this but was that the price of a new stylus from a Renishaw agent or via another outlet...ebay etc?

    Looks very interesting. How are you going to cope with shipping where the probe may spend several days in some arbitrary orientation?

    Hi Dave

    The plan is that the Probe will be user serviceable. I plan to link buyers to a non publicly listed technical video explaining applying the fluid and other technical details, and to perhaps supply the Probe with the end cap off, or on loosely...and a tube of the fluid - it only takes a minute to apply the lube and screw the end cap on.

    This will also mean buyers will have viewed and understand the construction and should be more comfortable with any future user service should that ever be required. For example should any contamination from coolant or dirt etc occur, they will still have the fluid and can clean it out and relube. ..or fit a replacement part if a massive crash occurs etc.

    Cheers Keen

    You might be able to vacuum package them which would probably not allow the fluid to move.

    How about an access cover on the side and just put a few drops of ACF-50 on the contacts every few months?
