All of my parts on my table are custom parts every time so I make a new zero every time

This is all personal setup - all my stuff is original etc but i always home first, it has allowed me to save jobs after a problem or two ;)

Okay I will hook it up like that right now. My proma is already hooked up measuring voltage!

Great- you got the dangerous bit working OK :)

the rest is just simple inputs, nothing more. you can even debug by replacing the proma with simple push switches - all you need is to get proper up & down control of the Z axis.

For COM, I connect this to the ground on my power supply?

Not usually - it all depends on what signal your BOB is looking for - some go to 0v on the BOB, some goto +5v on the BOB etc

Is there no connection for "inputs common" on the BOB?

Looks like you want pin12 NOT 7 as com.
