    After several hours playing with this it occurred to me that there was an even quicker and easier way - instead of soldering brass tube UNDER the pcb solder brass ANGLE to the top surface - will post a pic when I find some angle and make a new one.

    Alex, do you use CONTROL software with this? Curious how the X & Y probe works since there is no probe wizard for those two axis’?

    Hi, - no, I have the duet from Ooznest in the UK. I'm away from home and on my phone - I'll post my macro later if I can, but have a look at the OB control thread - I'm sure this has been mentioned there. I'll also tag @sharmstr, who I am fairly sure will be able to help you.
