    Default Z Prox. Switch

    About to install a Z Prox. switch. Anyone care to show how yours is installed. I see several posibilities but always looking for the best and fastest way to get the machine back in service.

    That's the one I have.


    It's part of the limit system, which is different than the proximity/homing one on my setup, so I don't use it as an accurate way to calibrate the Z. It help prevent to retract the Z too high and it's part of some of my custom routines that raise completely the Z before moving the X & Y.

    The bracket was cut with the Bot.

    Total cost was about $10-15; micro switch, wires, crimp connectors...
