Who makes the most accurate limit switches,
Optical or mechanical? I would like to put 2 of the 4
I will need for accurate homing.

My plane is to go direct drive, 100 IPM is plenty fast enough.

Well I've been doing some digging and found out that a spindle encoder is required to be able
to do treading and from what I found out it hooks into a brakeout board or something.

So I really don't won't to go monkeying around with the boards in my mill.

I have decided build the whole thing from scratch so I need you guys to
help me with what's needed as far as brake out boards drives and power supply.

My plan is to put steppers on it,1200oz on the Z and 640oz on the X.
If some one could put me a shopping together that would great!

Thanks again guys
Chris

I would like one of these as well.
It looks like it was made by the owner.
I was chasing forum threads on one of these and there
was talk of there being some detailed plans for one,
but so far I haven't been able to find them.

I plane on putting the same motors and limit switches on the lathe that the Tormach uses.
I will put Amphenol plugs in the cabinet so all I have to do is unplug the mill motors
and switch's plug up the lathe motors and switch's.
This way all the stuff in the cabinet matches.
Amphenol makes plugs big enough to put all the necessary
wires all in one big plug.   

I really appreciate ever ones help.
I know I my seam a little hard headed
but if I build a new control system
and I basically will end up with 2 control
cabinets and 2 PC setups.

I’m a one man shop and can only run one at
a time. Now as I get better I may need 2 separate
systems.   

Thanks for all your input

Chris
