Touch probe for axis calibration? - MidniteMachinist - 04-26-2023

This would be super useful. Being able to use the touch probe would make axis calibration even easier, and likely more accurate.

Especially when calibration micron or sub-micron scales. Trying to land on zero on a tenths indicator can be super fussy, and if you overshoot, you've got to start again. The touch probe will trip at the same point every time, which means overshooting by a few tenths with the handwheel won't matter.
