Thanks, Toff - I have been circling around the CNCGraf for a while, not yet being courageous enough to skip my known-working S4-system.

Those Baumer My-Com switches sure are expensive (!!) but nice. Do you have any suggestion for a not-quite-so-expensive, but-relatively-precise route that I could go for testing the system irl?

I think every micro switch, which is at least of decent quality - for example a Marquardt switch - would do the trick.  I have sent a PM to keep this thread clean.

I've been playing with the mill today, a front pannel for a GSSL compresor, quite happy with the results, 1'5mm two flute bit with 0,4mm depth pass for the cuts and 0'4mm 30° for the engraving, 0'15mm depth.

It's 5050 aluminium
Working on it...

No, I must confess that I haven't had the guts to move away from the already-working-but-very-slow system that I got...
