    Thank you for the offer, but I've already got the materials (2.5" aluminium round bar I reckon) except the bearings which are cheap enough on eBay.

    True ... however it does add to the time taken to make it so we'll see. If I get time to make my ATC it wouldn't...

    Stirling I thank you very much these routines will help me greatly and save me hours trying to write my own.
    Would also be interested in looking closer at your probe if possible.

    Again thank you very much.

    I'm just in the process of making a new probe. Will work on same principle just machined differant and usable as tool height gauge. . . I'll post pics when done.

    Well I think I'm ready to invest in a probe or even if I could buy a old prototype and have a play it would be good

    I did ask a member on this forum to make me one but sadly it never came to light so I'm asking if some one else to make me one I will pay up front for it if that suits
