FYI
Homing on my machine works properly in Ver1.96, I tried to go up to only Ver 2.02 and it does not function properly there. So somewhere between 1.96 and 2.02 something changed in the debounce or ?????. Back I go to 1.96

What I was getting at is if you require a debounce interval set you either have noise or bouncy switches, lots of people do and live with it because normally they can set a debounce interval to mask it, personally I prefer to not have to use any debounce.

smooth stepper and not using debounce, have all manufacturers of smooth steppers fitted schmitt triggers and filters to port inputs.

I gave it a try, no joy in Mudville. I must have some tough switches. For what I do, I may leave the machine like this. I always manually move off "0" to a different start point antway.

Only problem with that however is if you do hit a snag whilst machining, something like a power cut, you will maybe not be able to pick up from where you left off easily. If you home properly then offset and zero then its easy to go back to your offsets zero position again after a fresh homing move.
