Touch Plate

Post by MedicN74ae » Fri Dec 08, 2017 10:05 pm

I realize the folks are up to their ears in S3 back orders, but has anyone heard any rumors about when the Shapeoko Touch Plates will be back in stock?

I was recently informed that the Touch plates will be back in stock "soonish" --- please sign up to be notified about them on their product page.

Excellent, Thanks Will. I am signed up for the notify. I guess it's time to figure out the GRBL 1.1 upgrade so I can be ready.

Thanx Cap. Probably be that long to get 1.1 figured out with the holidays and such

Sadly, we're still waiting. Got CM4 up and running (LOVE IT). Any new guesses Will?

I emailed carbide3D last week to inquire about the availability of the touch plate. They told me they fabricate everything in-house, and the availability of their touch plate is the end of March or early April.
