I do sell these probes direct,   you can contact me at aminear@wyomingwireless.com
The wildhorse seller has pirated my probe design and now makes them himself.
I asked him to stop but he won't respond.
Please delete the reference to him.

I have sold over 300 of these probes,  I am not sure how people are using them but have only gotten 3 back.

Hi,
I guess I had been misinformed about whether you were still selling your probes - sorry.
I'll add your contact info to the list of probe vendors that I have.

What is your current price for the probe and is there a web site where folks can get more info etc?

Yes, I still have these in stock, the cost is $125 + shipping depending on where you are.  I have shipped these to England, Australia, Hong Kong, China, Vietnam, Sweden, Italy, and many other locations.   You can see my web page at
www.amelectron.com

I guess I have done well in the design of these probes, as attested by the pirating of my design by others.

Thanks
Arnie

Hopefully you realise that your unit is basically a copy of the original comercial designs from MANY years back. It is NOT a unique design.

Yes, my design is based on some older original types of probes but it is significantly different in several respects.  It has features that overcome weakness of other designs, like the loss of contact between the ball supports and circuit board, most other designs use some method of clamping these together to maintain contact. This causes it to be overly complicated.  Also it is unique in the ability or method of centering the probe tip in the center of spindle rotation.  This makes it true in finding the center of a hole.

I just recieved the probe.  I marked the spindle and TTS holder and I was able to get the probe centered within 2/10 of a thou.
My problem is, even without removing the probe from the spindle, everytime the probe barely touches something it never properly self centers and the probe tip is off 0.005" to 0.015".

Any ideas on what I can do to make it more repeatable?

BTW, what happened to your web site?
