Hey Tom, I should have a few more kits in the store by the end of the week. I will announce it here.

You can check the "notify me when a reply is posted" for this topic, but you might get a handful of emails before the kits are ready.

The way Etsy works is that they only show things for sale that are in stock. I don't want to list a bunch of kits until I am actually close to ready to ship them. Each kit has ten 3D printed parts in it and it takes about 5 hours to print a set. (3D printers are pretty cool, but they are slow...)

Thanks! I'll try to keep an eye on it and jump on them when they're up!

I just listed six more full kits and two print-your-own-parts kits in my shop.

Have at! :)

Looking at the pictures, the switches are connected in parallel which makes me think that they are NO, right?
Are you planning on selling the kit with NC switches? I think I want to go with the NC route.

I wasn't planning on offering an NC kit because frankly I don't see the benefit. But I could make one up if people really feel the need.

I just received my switch kit today and immediately recognized a limited z height situation like kristenanne77. TomO's solution seems to me the simplest. Just let the switch hit the top of the router. Problem solved. :)

Update: By the way, twforeman, these switches work great. Thank-you.

Glad they work for you. I do plan to rework the Z switch mount, I just have to find some time.

Just ordered mine! If you are about to fix something with z switch. I would be happy for you to hold my order for a few days to complete it. No pressure though. :D

It won't be that quick. :)

The current Z design works if you put the router and plate stops in the stock position.

When I get the new design figured out I'll probably just ship it to anyone who wants replacement parts for their existing kit.
