    Mainly for my benefit - a few EMC2 file backups (v2.3.4).
    If they're not useful to you they will be to me if my PC every fries itself!!! (Thanks for the diskspace Lee! )
    If anyone uses these just be careful - I'm learning so there could be some mistakes in here I haven't found yet...

    Change summary:
    Custom HAL File - startup of classicladder for touchprobe. Startup of chargepump.
    Custom PostGUI HAL File - connects AXIS PyVCP buttons (jog, touchprobe, and various easy homing and co-ord change buttons)
    Main HAL File - not sure if there any changes here - maybe the charge pump one.
    Custompanel.xml - pyVCP button layout (as PostGUI HAL file)
    Classicladder File - sorts out the logic and debouncing of the touchprobe (allows single button touchoff)
    Main INI File - Base & Servo periods, scales for axes (X needs tweaking), homing, limits. MDI commands for touchoff and other PyVCP buttons.

    I finally got around to replacing the dodgy original MDF router mount with a shiny "John S" type. An evening with an alu block and a mini-lathe is all it took.

    It has (obviously) massively improved the quality of cutting, and I can just just just cut aluminium now. Though 0.3mm depth of cut doesn't really count as cutting. Closer to vigorous polishing, but it's progress. Well chuffed.

    Off to post a separate Q about dust extraction now....
