Nice! That will be rediculoudly sturdy!
Yes! That's what I'm hoping for. Any chance you ventured into making an extruder outfitted for a BL Touch? Figured I'd ask but if not, I will probably go modify one of Lulzbot's files.

This one will not work for you?

I will express my CRAZY ideas at any time! So you have been warned. None of my opinions are Lulzbots and can be wrong at any second.

There is a back probe mount for the Openbuilds X rail. I don't know that I've ever published it other than the forums though. I should do that. I can easily make that one a BLtouch probe mount too, i'll just need to adjust the dimensions accordingly. Design production is still on hold for 1 month, 15 days until I am in my new house and have my printers up again!

Thank you! That'll totally work and it even comes with instructions. That makes it super simple.

Couple pics of the new parts I'm printing out. Having pretty good success with eSun epa+cf. Glass bed + kapton + Elmer's Xtreme glue stick.

Installed Duet, made custom extensions to connect to the stock wiring. I hated my sloppy half-assed job, so I'm going to re-rebuild this part and make custom wiring to the duet.

Debating if I want to try printing the extruder in Acetal. Perhaps its "slipperiness" would help the filament go in and slide easier?

I'm considering upgrading to a duet and don't really know where to start. Could you share any resources, parts used, mounting, and/or lessons learned while installing this?
