G0704 (BF20) Limit switches
I decided to go ahead and install limit switches so I could do the TTS repeatable tool holders, probe and MSS (Mach Standard Mill) implementations at once. I am very sick of touching off after every tool change!!
It was Taking me forever to come up with a design that I could machine on the mill, and then it hit me, 3D print them!
I have make simple mounts for the TEMCO limit switches found here.
X axis mount:
This was the easiest because the adjustable stops were already on the cross slide. I also extended the bottom so that it would protect the Y axis lead screw that gets exposed.
Then the Y axis mount and rail for adjustable stops:
(Pics to follow!)
Z axis mounts and stop rail:
As per the request below, here are the .STLs for the mounts.
The switches are repeatable to below 0.001" on all axis, works for me!!

Can you post the stl files for the 3d printed parts?
