Did a little work on the SpectraLight mill. Installed new Omron A22-01 dual pole E-stop switch. This way I can use it to signal the Deepgroove controller separate from the Spindle controller. The Minarik VFD spindle control didn't like being grounded to the Deepgroove controller e-stop circuit.

Installed new spindle speed control pot. I turned the old one too hard one day, and made it unreliable. The new one has these markings, Pec Canada 1001 Ks3u1031s28 10K. A little hard to find. Intelitek pn22-5300-0001 if you want it right away.

Added the connections to the Deepgroove for Spindle speed control, remote e-stop, 10volt input for spindle reference, and 4 inputs for things like limit\home switches, probes, etc. Used an adjustable wall wart for the Gecko G540 spindle reference signal. It only does standard 12v, 9v, etc. So I get a little faster spindle on 12 volts, I think it will be ok on 12v. 10 volts seams to be hard to obtain around these parts, might have to make one.
