The hole probe (ahem) is a treat, as my Brit mates like to say. It doesn’t care if the end mill is teeny tiny or mega big, if it will fit in the hole the zero datum is guaranteed. And then, for backup, we have the corner probe, also cutter diameter independent.
Hold on, photo op.
Hawk touched down on the fence, looking for doves that have been hanging around.
The thing that happily surprised me was that there was just one cable from the controller to the probe, with the magnetic ground pigtailing off the probe block. With separate probe and ground wires, I somehow seem to wind them up around each other over time no matter how I think I’m going to avoid that. Having just one should solve that problem.
