I figure I’m not the only woodworker to get the itch to try the Prox Sensor upgrade, so I’ll post the upgrade process here, in three easy steps. I’m on step three.
Buy Proximity sensors to replace your hard limit switches. They’re cheap. I bought these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tl-w5mc1-Dc-3-wire-Type-Square-Proximity-Sensor-Switch-L2/183918670256?epid=2292892457&hash=item2ad26831b0:g:kFUAAOSwmOJaKO2L
Realize Prox Sensors are 3-wire, and the limit switches the machines come with are 2wire. Panic. Ask anyone who will listen for help.

I have done a bit basic electronics soldiering, but just to put tiny broken connectors back together, I don’t have an ohmmeter or any idea of what goes to what. Here are some pics of my Nomads board, to hopefully find a 5v power source for three sensors:
