General Mach Discussion / Touch Probe and Touch Plate Help?
« on: November 07, 2014, 06:13:07 PM »
so just got my tormach passive probe today, so I turned my cheap probe into a touch plate for TLO.

but the question is how to set to probe height when both probe and touch plate are spring loaded?

the tormach probe gives way before the touch plate.

also the length of the probe will never ever change, it will stay in that tool holder for life, is there a way to set the height so I never have to faff around with touching it on the touch plate?

so I have a new tormach passive probe wired into my pmdx board and the above probe ive turned into a touch plate for tools.

whats the best way to wire these two in?

can you have them both in the same input or do they need to be separate?

ages ago someone modded to teach button on the run screen of machstdmill for me so that it released the drawbar.

ive just installed mach on a new pc copied everything across but this feature isn't working.

what file would I need to copy across from the old pc to get this to work, anyone know?

managed to find where the probe is from and get it wired in


its working as the red led on the side lights up when the probe is touched.

struggling with MSM setup, watching the videos there is ever video going but how to actually set it up. do I need to activate the probe in msm? ive set the port and pins up in mach3

when I got my cnc it came with one of these touch probes -

ive never used it and now want to, but I know nothing about it and have no instructions.

its got 3 wires, red blue and black. any tips on how to connect up?

im running mach std mill and I believe it just works with that, no extra software needed.
