I already have X and A ganged and switched and working flawlessly.

I think it is your slave setting.  You have A as a slave of Y.  If you have a slaved axis you will need each of those aixs to have a limit, not both of them as one if you do NOT have the the home slave with master axis tick box set in general config..  The way the homeing routine works if you have all home switches to one pin or each to their own is this.  It moves in the direction of homeing untill it sees the home switch change states then it goes in the opposite direction by a set amount then does the next axis in the order that the on screen Ref. all vb button in mach tells it to until they are all done.  Yours are going in order of Z,Y,X,A but your slave settings page makes me think they should be Z,Y,A,X I think.  I'm a little confused.  What axis is A slaved to?  If a is slaved to Y but you have X and A inputs ganged, I think that may be your problem.

This really should be a topic of its own.

I have never used it so all of this is a guess but i would say you load your gcode into Mach, chose the wizzard and run it, enter the specifics, hit create file, then hit return to Mach.  You will also need to make sure the program you generate has an M99 and the end of it, not M30.

Thanks for the help I'm at work right now. If you look at the cad drawing I attached and zoom extents, down in the lower right hand corner you will see a pictue of the smoothstepper and bob. It will show you exactly how everything is wired. I hope that will help clear up the ganging thing. The only thing they are ganged to is power. they are each on their own circuits. Y and A are slaved but each has it's own limit switch.so when I home Y it will touch the switch for Y and backoff then touch the A and back off. Does that mean I need to change the option home slave with master?

No, the way you have it is fine and sounds like its working exactly as it should.  If you check the home slaved with master it will not actually home the slaved axis, it will just folow the movements of the master.

I have sent you a PM.
