Mount to hold a Mitutoyo micrometer head to use as the adjustable z-axis endstop.

Also includes the lower mount for the switch and rod clamp to hold it to a 10mm rod.


The micrometer head holder is designed to hold a Mitutoyo 148-811 micrometer head to a MendelMax 1.5 build using Lulzbot X-ends. It'll probably hold many other micrometer heads. You'll probably have to clean out the hole to fit the micrometer to achieve a snug assembly fit. Tap the side hole for a 4/40 set screw to hold the micrometer head in place.

I've included the Solidworks files for your modification pleasure.
