Rather than create another thread, I thought I would add a link to a DIY probe that I found, that doesn't involve heavy-duty lathing/machining, and would actually be able to be partially created with your SO2/SO3:link. I haven't made it (yet), but this one seems much more doable by an average DIYer.

Also, if DIY isn't your thing, and you don't mind spending a little money (~$135), here is one you can buy: link

Here is the link to the DXF files for the DIY probe: link
ShapeOko2, serial ??
DW660 spindle;
Upgrades: 900mm X axis and 1000mm Y axis; ACME Z Axis; modified MDF wasteboard with t-slot
Primary usage: wood crafting (signs, plaques, and ultimately a CNC-made electric guitar)
