Thanks for that tip also… for anyone wanting a SUPER simple mod for only $18 that makes improves workflow significantly here’s everything in a nutshell…
Buy this wireless number pad from Amazon for $18 (https://www.amazon.com/G-Cord®-Wireless-Notebook-Computer-Compatible/dp/B00T5J6GK0?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s01)
Pull the battery tab (battery is included) to power it on
Plug in the wireless USB piece into a USB port (I bought a hub so I could still have plenty of extra USB ports)
It installs itself and is ready to use right away
Here’s how it works:
Arrow up/down = move Y in the positive/neg direction
Arrow right/left = move X in the positive/neg direction
Page u/down = move Z up/down
Press the “num lock” to allow jog speed changes
While in num lock…
1 = "fast jog"
2 = "slow jog"
3 = 1 mm per press
4 = 0.1 mm per press
5 = 0.01 mm per press
Switch the num lock off to allow jogging again.
Its wireless so you can put the number pad right next to the router if you want to while you are jogging. Mine just sits in my enclosure for super easy jogging without stretching between the computer and the router to see what’s going on.
Thanks again @vkopr for posting this fast, cheap, simple and effective upgrade!!
I’m going to post the details in its own thread just so people don’t miss this one.
