    I've just made a similar version edge finder to that of the maker masters project by bill Briggs

    my question is, how do we wire these things up to the BOB

    Link would be helpful.!! . . . But it's usually just straight to an input so + & gnd just like any limit switch or E-stop.!

    Oh I see thanks for that. Would the ground be the tool and the plus the edge finder?

    sorry here is the link http://www.themakersguide.com/home/p...-edge-finder-2

    Most of all depends of your exact BOB. Whats yours? Usually on pin 13 directly if you have pull up resistor there. http://www.autoleveller.co.uk/cnc-probe-guide/

    Yes but you don't always need the Gnd clip depends if machine/spindle goes to gnd. For safety sake your better using both.

    No, it says this in the uniport manual;

    "Either way you can wire switches between input and ground with no external component needed."
    Spelling mistakes are not intentional, I only seem to see them some time after I've posted

    Uniport works fine straight from the inputs I used one for 2yrs until it gave up the ghost. My famous Rupert Egg touch probe video was using the uniport.
