DID we not just go thru this for X/Y ?  It is done the same way for Z.

NO you move the Z axis 1inch and measure how far it really moved. THEN adjust your steps per in motor tuning untill  it is correct.

It is a homemade table 48x48. I ran an ESAB shadow 500 and 1000 for about 10 years and never had to do any of the technical stuff. We called maintenance. lol. Decided to get this one so my wife cut cut the pretty yard decorations etc and here I am trying to get everything working right. I sure do appreciate the help. will be cutting mostly 12 and 14 guage. maybe some 20 guage stainless.
