Thanks Hood. I tried that and when pressing home x, y moves and I press home y, x moves. I think there is something going on with the set I am using in the reference buttons. Also when I press ref y button, the axis does not move but the dro numbers are moving. Please advise.

I am using ref y button in diagnostics. How do I check the code for the buttons?

After hours of troubleshooting I found out that my table was off by 1/16" and pushing on the y axis mount. Its smooth now.
Its 24X36 tabletop running on 177 oz steppers and acme 10:1 screws. it has Y and A axis with A being the slave and Y the main axis.
I do have another problem now. it seems my X and Y axis motor outputs are reveresed only when I try to reference. when I reference X the Y axis moves instead and vice versa. I checked all the cabling and it all traces fine. when I jog it works correctly X is X and Y is Y. what could be the problem? I also tried uninstall and reinstall Mach3.

Hello All, I am a newbie to cnc and I am glad to have access to such a resourceful site. I have a 24"X36" tabletop cnc machine and I am going through the initial testing. The problem is that when I run the circle g-code program it comes out as an oval instead. I am not sure where to start troubleshooting this problem. Your help is really appreciated. Thank you
