Hey Hood! Actually made a cut on Friday. I cut out an octagon.Still having the issue of when i reference the "y" axis. It is still moving to the opposite end of the table to reference. Still have to fix it. Also, on Friday, I had to turn down the feedrate percentages down on the program run screen for mach3. This is after the optimum travel has been set along with the arc voltage. Thanks, Fritz

You can reverse the homing direction by changing the home negative setting for the Y, you will get it from Config menu then Homing and Limits.

Cut an octagon on Friday! Cut was nice! However, i had to turn the feedrate down on the mach3 program run screen. This is after i set the optimum travel speed and set the correct arc voltage. Also, gantry still wants to travel to the opposite end of the table after the "y" axis is referenced. The 2 stepper motors start grinding and the carriage doesn't want to move! On the octagon, all the vertical (y axis) cuts have a rigid finish. Seem to have a racking problem. It is supposed to correct itself after referencing but doesn't! Thanks, Fritz

I did adjust the homing like you said and still moves in the wrong direction.
