Good Eye.  That is an idler wheel but nice spotting.

I have come up with a new solution that will fix the issue that does not involve chasing steps anymore.

I have attached a bit of code that is the "crossover" portion of the surfboard file.  As it is Z (Z=0.00) comes back up to home and then crosses over to cut opposite side of board.  When it does this it comes within 9mm of the Z limit switch.  My problem would be solved if instead it went all the way and touched off the limit switch then come back to home and then continue cutting.  Problem solved.

Question is this.  What kind of command should I use to make this happen.  I have attached what it looks like now and if any of you fine fellows could instruct me as to what the string of code that would work best. 

This remedy will allow Z to "find" it's place after one side of the board is complete since I am of the mind that it is the crossover that is the cause of the issue.  I don't konw how or why but I will use coding as a solution for now.
