    For those of us whose eyes are not what they used to be an Audible Edge finder is a very good investment. Even if your eyes are OK they are still helpful. They make a clicking sound when they kickout and it is loud enough to hear over most machine tools with out difficulty. Only cost a few dollars more than regular ones and are well worth it. They are made by most edge finder manufacturers. Here is a link to one sold by Little machine shop, mostly because they halve a good photo. Do a search for Audible Edge Finders for you favorite brand at your favorite store. Amazon has a good selection also.

    A brilliant idea. I might just get one for Christmas.

    I bought one of those a while back. For me, the little clicks are hard to hear over the mill's motor noise. I just rely on the "jump" like any other finder.
