As Terry has stated it would seem your pin assignment is wrong for your home switches. In ports and Pins, Inputs. Change X pin for the one Z is using, Change Y for the one X is using and change Z for the one Y is using.

Is that the xml you downloaded or the one you are actually using?
There is something weird about it but as yet i have not been able to work out the cause.
If it is the one you downloaded then please attach the one you are actually using.

Hood , you guys were right , i reversed x home & y home and it correctly homed out . That xml file is the one i started with , just having to try to  get things working one step at a time , next is getting spindle to stay on , command  s100m3 and spindle turns on , runs a couple seconds and stops ,,,,, this is a learning experience !!

If you attach the xml you are using now I will see if I can find the spindle issue.
