    After reading Hilton Steve's post on his tool hight probe and how useful it was i thought id give it a go.
    As i am a tad paranoid about driving my tool straight through the probe I also thought I would add a couple of E-Stop switches in parallel under the spring loaded contact

    the switches run straight back to my bob E-stop (iv not wired it up yet, ill feel much better when I do)... the washer makes contact to the brass contact through the spring

    this could be made much lower profile as its a bit tall... i may have to have another go at this but for now ill see how we get on :)

    sounds promising :)
    it may be over cautious but my head just cant chill when the tool is decending.
    this way i can scratch my balls flick my fag ash and set my tool hight all in one go
