The bitsetter on the Shapeoko Pro is fantastic…but…it only works if your endmill is greater than 1.5 inches. The reason is, when establishing zero, the endmill cannot reach the button, yet, can reach the desired depth of the worksurface, because you are typically using these sort of tiny endmills for vcarves, engraving, etc.
What would be awesome, would be if Carbide3D sold a magnetic pin that went ontop of the bitsetter and altered the height for probing these small endmills. When you select “tool change” in carbide motion, there would be a checkbox to indicate whether you have the ‘magnetic pin’ on top of the bitsetter (I have mocked the magnetic pin up in the photo)
@robgrz - I’m thinking this would take less than a day to build into Carbide Motion (1 hour of coding and 7 hours testing) and then you would either need to mill or procure the magnetic pin - but I would definitely pay $50 for this (however I think a reasonable price would be between $20-$30). I am assuming that this change would pay for itself pretty quickly
