Simply search "Haimer 3D Taster issues"

Great while they work, useless once they fail, even the company that makes them cannot reliably repair them!

I wouldn't touch one with yours! ;-)

Interesting. I am/was planning on getting one when I get my mill. What else would you suggest?

Different brand (mahr)? Digital? Or not have one at all and just stick to wobblers/feeler gauges/paper...

It depends how you work, I have a 10mm shank edge finder as my primary reference tool in the tool table, but I also have a modified electronic LED edge finder with a sprung ball tip which is nice.
Copier paper is reliably 0.1mm thick for edge and surface finding with actual tooling, if you want to use a small hole as a reference get a pointed centre finder, lower it into the hole until the taper section encounters friction then feel the shaft (f'nar, f'nar) for the step and jog to position, like the Mk1 Eyeball the Mk1 Finger is a much underestimated tool.

I obviously had the same thought you did :hysterical:

I had an idea about those LED things, twigging on to the circuit with the LED and wiring it in to the control as an N/O probe. Don't know if possible, or worthwhile.

Reckon I'll still go with the Haimer, if it lasts a few years its money well spent IMO.
