firstly this post should be on the Mach4 General Discussion Board.

Mach4 like Mach3 which preceeded it does not back off. If you set a 'home offset' when that axis homes instead of the
machine coordinates of that axis being set to zero they are set to the value you have nominated as 'home offset'

In addition to that feature of Mach some motion controllers including the 57CNC and ESS allow you to set  a 'Back off Distance'
as well. Thus the setting you are looking for if offered by the controller and will be found it the PoKeys plugin.

There is a difference between Home Offset and Back-Off.
