Tachometer Issues on iGaging Launchpad Build (a FW bug?)
#2
I went with an infrared "proximity" sensor for the tach. It was a lot easier to stick pieces of reflective tape on my spindle than deal with magnets. It required a little careful tweaking, but has been working great for months now.

There is more than one type, and I actually have an assortment that I intend to try out one of these days to compare ease/difficulty of installation and adjustment, but the first one I tried works so well that I lack a strong incentive.

I used one of these that you can get from Amazon 10 for $10:

I made a video of my TouchDRO installation (tach is about 13 minutes in):
