Provided a good scan for my F-Mandolin
Posted August 31, 2014
I have used the probe once to scan a plate from a hand carved F-Mandolin back. It was fine for this application and even picked up all the fine work around the scroll. The Installation manual was a bit out of date for the Shark HD controller I have (less than 1 year old) as I did not have to install the interior cable and jack. Make sure you read the User manual carefully at least twice.

These things are like magic, you can scan stuff and then actually cut it CNC Shark.my experiance isnt all good though. After a couple big scans the probe would stop hugging the work and ride above it. In an attempt to clean it I of course broke the circuit board inside. I immediatly bought another one and it seems to be holding up.

I'm only giving this item a good rate as I have tried many settings to scan coins. It won't work with a coin. I have been informed, via: Vetric forum that the tip is NOT fine enough to scan a coin. It is rated to 0.001 but will not pick up the rise on the coin very well at all, even setting the step sizes down to 0.002 and the scan velocity at 2! which is better than 26 hours to scan a 2" coin. The outer profile was smooth but that is all I got. I did scan a lighthouse candle mold and that scan turned out great. Just make sure you set the "Z" setting way higher than the object being scanned so the needle don't get bent or broke. They do need to change what they are claiming the Prob will pick up from 0.001 to about .01 or larger.
