    Hi Advil.

    That was my earlier design, but now the contacts operate in their own mini reservoirs and the greater bulk of fluid does a much better job of cleaning, lubricating, and stopping oxidisation.

    The end cap can be removed in a minute to access the contacts and apply the initial fluid top up after postage arrival.

    Keen;
    I tried to email you last week but may have missed a response. Is your probe going to be commercially available. I will be interested if one when and if they become available.
    Great work!

    Put me on the interested list as well.

    Our mill does run under Path Pilot now, but it is a Novakon Pulsar, so does not yet have any point to plug in a probe.
    I will have to research how that is done.
    We currently use one of these. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    It's pretty accurate, but pretty slow as well. It is only as accurate as the operator.
    It does double duty on the Tormach lathe and does a good job there too, but again pretty slow.
    I would love to take advantage of Path Pilot's probe routines.

    Lee, I use pin 15 on the BOB for my probe. Works great on the Pulsar with Path Pilot.

    Thanks, Steve.
    What type of receptacle do we need for this probe? Or does it come bare and we order the plug and receptacle that we like?

    I think I need to look at what the lathe has. It has something there, but haven't paid that much attention to it.

    Thanks for your support Guys.

    It is important to keep zone threads on technical and off commercial matters.

    If you want to contact me to discuss other matters you can send me a PM.

    Cheers Keen

    Hi Lee

    At least initially I will only be supplying Probes with Tormach compatible cable and DIN 5 pin plugs already attached.

    That will be cool. I can probably find those on Amazon, electrical parts houses or even Tormach.

    Hi Lee.

    I am just checking we are on the same page. The ITTP will (initially at least) have on it a normal Tormach compatible 5 pin DIN plug and cable all connected up and ready to operate.

    What do you mean you can find those on amazon etc ?

    Just the receiver end that your probe will plug into.

    This looks pretty cool, I would be interested in something like this, looks sturdy, more so then my wild horse which is the better of the low cost probes I've owned.
