Sure. This video turns up right after I bought a Triquetra probe. :)

So, I presume that the circuit is some sort of proximity sensor switch (capacitive or otherwise). Regardless, it looks like it eliminates using the end mill as part of the electrical patch (no alligator clip). Bravo! I love the idea.

This is not the final version, so hopefully the circuit and wiring will be better protected. By this, I mean something like a clear potting compound to keep debris out of the circuit pocket. Also, a channel milled on one of the non-probing sides to guide the wires completely away from moving parts.
