Yes the script is standard. When I changed the orders all I did was jog each axis further away from the limit switch in turn.
I did go to the diagnostics page and homed each axis individually. The reset flashed on every axis as it backed off and zeroed.
I will only be able to post the xml this evening at around 5.30.

The script can not be standard if all axes are moving at the same time as default is Z first then Y then X then A.
Anyway regardless of that sounds like your switches may be bouncing.

 ;D I got it!!!!!!!!! It was all about that pin 13 mixup. Pin 13 is for the A limit and pin 15 is for E Stop. Of course having disabled the A axis to try and get it all working made it look like the E Stop was working, but it was actually giving the A axis over travel signal. So I have switched the pins in the input signals and now it all works. ;)
BUT, I haven't messed with the script in the 'all home' button, and when activated all 3 axes move together. How do I change this to the default of 1st Z then Y then X. I don't want to crash cutters. :D
I have attached the latest xml, if that helps.

I have just noticed that when pressing the 'home all' button on the screen, the Z moves first so it must be that when I configured my number pad pendent I did not get the movement right. I will have to have a look and see if there is another way to do it.

Once again a huge thank you to all of you for all your help, you certainly make this process much easier for the challenged like me.
