    I am using a ShuttleXpress USB jog control. It works with Chilipeppr to control the CNC xPro. The interface in Chilipeppr is really nice, even speaks the axis to you on button press.

    Yeah, the source code is included, so you can change it as you desire. I'm not sure if that's a good idea though, as the outer dial is spring loaded, while the inner dial is free spinning.
