    on the x axis there is a gap at either end, but i'm not sure on the other axis.

    Well when its running i will do some tests and see just how accurate they really are.

    Looking at the data sheet it looks like it will drive a small relay direct, or even switch an input to ground.

    Well its not really A wiring diagram but i think you will understand it:-

    I'm wondering if the BU wire could be used to directly take a mach input low, or keep it low until the gap appears. If you get chance give it a go.

    I did consider this but i was looking at the boxford covered up in the garden pooring with rain and decided i wanted to do something and i just decided i had a 5 relay board and small 12v powersupply so i did it, it may be overkill but at least with the relay design i can utilise the sensors output without a PC fullfilling my manual control Obsession!!! lol

    have you pulled that out of another holder that's in your spindle, as it looks just like the colchester easy change holder from a 30 int holder. Or does that go straight into the spindle.

    there should be a cap head screw that goes through the centre of your easychange holder. Or does the spindle bolt screw into the top of the easy change
