hmmm ok I ordered the adapter thor's little brother posted and some leads.  We will see how this goes.  Pictures to follow when i get it set up.  Thanks loki for the amazon links.  I had some amazon gift cards which is why i started looking at switches to begin with.

My pleasure land of Robin Hood  ;)
Please keep us updated. I have yet to add end switches myself, so I am very interested to see how this goes.

Just did a google search and ebay is about 1/4 the amazon price when including shipping. Wonder if there is a difference.

I would say because it is eBay. Yeah, it is $6.88 from amazon, but you will get it in two days. Otherwise, it does t look too different.

Ok so i was working on the wiring of the nano adapter and home switches last night.  It looks very plug and play except 1 thing.  I need some jumper splitters so I can run the ground for the switches and back into the shield for the stepper motors and laser.  I found one on ebay but it ships from china.  This is the only one i can find.  Has anyone seen any other places?

If you have some jumpers just cut them and wire nut them together to make one of these. If you want more professional look, order that and use the wire nut one until it gets there.

Yeah I ordered a bunch of jumpers so I think that is what I'm gonna have to do.  I wanted a solderless solution because I dont trust my soldering.  However If there is only one solder joint in the whole board I did it will be easy to find the problem.

ok broke down and did the soldering.  course im out of shrink tube. So Ill have to do that tomorrow. It is mocked up for now though.

 Zax I think I'm doing something wrong but i dont know what.

I have the switches wired to d9 and ground and have them in parallel wired to normally open. I turned on home switches in t2.  Hit the home button.  It then moves the x axis in a positive direction.  The home switch is just in my hand for test purposes so I push the switch.  It then says alarm and stops.  I must be doing something wrong but I cant sort out what. Im on firmware 1.1e
