Hood - thanks - as I said - allways willing to learn.

Do you *still* not have to make sure that you're at the correct side of home before you do a "ref all home" though?

I dont because my drives will look and see if the home switch is active, if it is the drive will send the axis the opposite way until the switch closes and then it moves back again towards the switch, once it sees the switch it looks for the index pulse on the encoder and then finally it moves back by a user set encoder count.

hello,
I have the similar problem. I want MACH3 to reference the machine to Home at beginning. I have connected Home switches for three axes. Now whenever I feel I have lost the position, I need some way by which I can go to home limit and at the trigger of Home  proximity switch, the axis will calibrate to Zero.
pl help.

Not really sure what you are meaning as if you do a Home it will reset the machine coords, so should put you back to where you were.
