Summary

Here is the Y endstop clamp I have been using.

It is for a 0.5"x0.225"x0.25" body microswitch. It could be modified in sketchup for a different size switch.

Instructions

  1. Print
  2. Mount to aluminum extrusion with 2 m5x10 screws and 2 t-slot nuts or thin m5 nuts
    (3). I also had to glue a small block on my carriage so that the switch arm would hit it.

I bought them off ebay. I searched "micro switch", "mini switch", and "lever switch". No part number. There are plenty available in the same size package. Here is one with a straight lever arm:

And one with a roller arm:

I can't seem to find one at the moment with a curve lever arm like mine, but the straight or roller arms should work with a little adjustment.

where did you source the switches? is there a part #? thanks!
