Ok, I admittedly do a lot of probing because I’m not shy about tool-changes in CNCjs but all of a sudden I was dive-bombing my end mills into the probe block. I am 90% sure that the connection between the probe block and banana plug is failing. I tried to re-wire but did not re-solder it after nipping off the old end. I am pretty sure the solder is required for connectivity? As the end was originally soldered and I recal Charlie mentioning this somewhere. Either way, I am looking for an over-engineered solution that has worked for others.
(Not sure if it matters but I would like to pocket out a hole in the corner of the probe so I can try the circular probe macro in CNCjs)
There just has to be better replacement options out there for both the magnetic clip and the banana plug? I am very ok at soldering. I always appreciate the over-engineered type approach.
NOT complaining at all about the Triquetra Touch probe, as it is a chunk of machined Aluminium. I like the software that came with it because it helped with my learning curve. Now I don’t use the software at all because of CNCjs macro stuff but that’s a whole other book.
EDIT: I do still use the Fine Tune feature in the software! Just because it’s a bulletproof process! I plan to poke around the program again to see if there’s anything else that I might be able to use.
