Mechanical endstop salvaged from old CD ROM drive

Wow, been out for almost a month. Now as I'm back home, will start remembering what I did before I left for that long trip.

Meanwhile here's a quicky - if you need a compact two-way endstop (for e.g. a CNC or a 3D printer or else), you can salvage one from an old CD ROM drive. Here's how it looks:
It will serve as TWO endstops (i.e. you'll need a piece per one axis) and will suit most of the projects. Wiring is so simple that I'll not even be going into that. Happy endstopping.

Cheers!
