Shapeoko XXL touch probes for sale on etsy

Post by tedth » Fri Nov 22, 2019 4:54 am

I didn’t want to spend $120 on the Carbide Touch Probe so I designed my own circuit board and layed out my own PCB. After designing the PCB I priced out a milled aluminum block that matches the parameters of the carbide block. The cost of a few blocks was spendy so I ordered 20 blocks. I now have 19 touch probes to sell. In the end it was a fun project, but paying a company to mill the aluminum blocks was really not worth it.

My touch probe is plug -n-play with the Shapeoko xxl (uses the 3 pin header on the newest model) and works exactly like the Carbide probe. The only difference is my power led is red and a valid probe reading is green.
