    I've finally finished my LEAD CNC with BlackBox, and I can already see that having a physical emergency stop button, but haven't been able to find any wiring ideas for how to approach this.

    Wire a button between the black box and the power supply.

    That is more the type of thinking I was wanting, great idea. I was looking for a way of triggering the software stop just like the limit switches do. Thanks for the ideas.

    I use the limit switch all the time. But you asked for "emergency" stop :)

    You can also use the door switch input if it isn't already used. It works fine for me because the switch closure stops all movement and shut the router off. Yet I keep the system alive.
