Hello All. Does anybody know if Bill Griggs' Triple Edge Finder is compatible with Linux?

Bill has posted on his Facebook page that he has no experience setting it up with LinuxCNC.

That being said, I have bought one, and have found scripts out there to use such a probe for centering and touch off online. I have not, however, had the opportunity to wire it up and try it yet.

That being said, if you get one and figure it out before me, let me know what your process is!

It really isn't an issue with Linux or the OS. LinuxCNC can easily do this, and I think Probotix is working on a touch plate (and there are other posts in the forums talking about their use). It is just a matter of getting LinuxCNC to do what we want it to do. :)

Can you post the scripts that you have that might work. I have a touch off plate, but not an edge finder.
