It's not very pretty but it works. A few months ago, I bought the touch off tool on Amaxon. Finally, I got the other parts yesterday while me and the missus were ridein' around. From watching a few videos, it appeared all I needed was a resistor, an led and some soldering skills! UGH! I scratched around the shop and found a plastic box with some screws in it. They now have a new home. The puck came with wire and an alligator clip already installed so all I had to do was solder in the led and the resistor. Dang, it worked first try! See that pretty red light shining brightly. Before ruining a board, I will double/triple check the zero on the "z" axis. I measured the puck 9 different ways and seem to get some slightly different results so I will need to check it with a feeler gauge and possibly change the indicated thickness. By entering .758 in the "Z" Axis, it appeared to be at zero when I lowered the bit to the work piece. I will check it to make sure. Now I know this isn't an automatic tool, but it should help me get better results when changing bits during a project. I hope to try it out soon...maybe tomorrow after I check in on my mom.
