Here's how I home my machine.

Here's a Manual Homing sequence that works and is repeatable.

First - Jog all axis near (less than 1 ") the "Home" position. Tap the <TAB> key to bring up the Jog Pendant, change Jog Mode to Step and distance to 1".
Select an unused offset, On the offset screen type in 239 for the offset and make sure all values are 0 (zero)
I start with the Z axis - I now hit the Jog Z Up  key and wait for the Z axis to hit the limit switch and stop moving and the E-Stop is flashing. Reset teh E-Stop. on the MDI Screen type G92 Z0 and the DRO for Z will read 0.0000. Now zog the Z axis away from the limit and wait for it to finish moving 1".
Now repeat for each of the other axis.

I do this on a KX3 and have very repeatable results.

I hope that not too many people think that this is an embarassingly simple question, but can someone please tell me how to set the soft limits on a Seig X3 mill in Mach 3?
I am new to CNC but I am an ex (very) press toolmaker.
Thanks in anticipation
