Pictures of endstops

Hey all,

I'm adding endstops to my machine (I know, I know, I should have done this a long time ago) but I can't figure out where the gantry and car hit the rails. I can see the end blocks on the plan, but I don't know what runs into it. Can someone post a couple of pictures of their endstops and where they make contact? thanks.

See this post for a pic of the "stop blocks" which are screwed to the carriages, and they hit the end-stops at the end of the rails

Here's a pic of one of my X-rail stop blocks and a pic of my Y-rail stop block. I made these up myself per the plans. If you bought a laser cut kit, it probably has some bent/cut blocks in the kit.
