    Nowhere it that link but I was looking for a pendant on linuxcnc forums and this one is mentioned so I bought one 60. If you google linuxcnc pendant this pendant is the first hit.



    http://linuxcnc.org/docs/html/man/man1/xhc-hb04.1.html
    http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/wik...ss_MPG_Pendant

    There's quite a few threads on both the wired and wireless version, linuxcnc has had native support since 2.6 for this pendant.

    I bought from this seller

    It comes with 5m cable which is enough for me.

    I suppose I really should wire the VFD to the BOB so I can control it from linuxcnc, the main thing for me is turning the spindle off when it's done.

    So I can drink tea and smoke cigarettes ;)

    5m is the max length for reliability so I guess that's why they went with it but you can buy a wireless one from china for 5 more if I'd seen this yesterday I would have bought it but I don't really care either way I have a habit of losing things so wired is probably a good thing lol. The one I bought is coming from UK so will have it next week.

    Another thing that needs charging is not always good either.. If I order myself something like this it will have a cable :)
    But I think I will try xbox 60 or psu controller first.. have those laying about!
    Wife and kids will be away week 11 so I'm hoping, dreaming and drooling about the oppertunity to maybe get time to see some movement from my roaring router :D
