MPCNC: Relocated Camera

The original camera position put it close to the MPCNC’s DW660 spindle:

Unfortunately, it sat slightly too close to the gantry roller along the X-axis for comfort.

The effort required to pry the mount off its hot-melt glue bed showed it wasn’t ever going to shake loose, so I fired up the glue gun and stuck it to a better spot on the XY assembly:

Bonus: it’s now trivially easy to tweak the locking screw!

Realigning the camera and recalibrating its offset proceeded as before.
