Thanks this works great... I was able to use 3mm cap screws everywhere without any tapping... Just force the first thread in and the screw will tap itself.

So in total, I used 15 M3x12 cap screws. These can be found in Assortment Kits on amazon and ebay.

1/4-20x1 cone screw and nut for the shaft. Drilled the shaft out to 1/4 and installed the screw

10-32x1 shoulder screw and nut for the 3/16" probe. Cut the head off and Super glue the probe in.

Home made spring wound on a 3/8 shaft.

I had all of this stuff as left overs,,, Thus this probe only cost me the plastic to print it.. Thanks again.
