  index debounce and debounce intervals put 2500 in both boxes no change
 I'm getting my butt kicked bad
 I'm about as new to mach3 and machining  as they get
 hard to explain
 I'm getting the emg limit switch  trigger    i get this when there is no power going to my AC 110 to 36 DCV converter  nothing else is on except 5 DCV usb port cable to break out board that the 5 DCV that powers the limit switched .there is also like 2 or 3 DC/v  coming from PC to break out board through parallel cable.
 at first it was just z axis   now it all of them i if i go through and auto set  X and Y axis  get to z axis I'm done on any pin  still hard to explain 
removed Z axis wires  from break out board   
enable z axis limits switches  and touch z axis limit switch post on break out board  24 GA wire 10 ft long not hooked up on other end of wire   limit switch trips emg  no light on diagnostic board cannot reset hard fault  but no lights diagnostic screen 
 and i dont know enough to run without limit switches at first i thought it was my wires too or switches
 i have wired normally open on my switches now i would wire to normally closed but if i cant even hook a wire up to the breakout board   i don't have a shielded wires on my limits i will re wire tomorrow with the right wire
and go to normally close on my limits
 this is  a do it yourself with without instructions manual  cnc router  lol   i think this problem is in the pc or the pin choice
 thank yoyu dont give up on this please

                                                                          good day everyone
  my 6in round circles are not round
 there are 2 flat spots  one on each side of the circle  at 3,30 to 4 o clock  and 180 % out 930 to 10 o'clock.
both flat spot are about 1.5 long inches  the same .
 this where i guess.    I'm thinking it is backlash  and its OK if I'm thinking wrong 
 i am reading my manual as i am writing this.
   if this is a backlash adjustment  how do i know which axis to set or have a problem with.  I'm at 1511 units per inch
   is there troubleshooting manual or a book that i can get or  buy, download.
  it is hard to keep on asking questions I'm sure the answer is in my manual .
 p.s  i check on some schools here in town  to see if i could pick up a class on cad /cam . it is very sad  no classes, closest class is 165 miles  one way. 
  once again thank you for helping me
