    So i like that there is a homing option. Unfortunately after homing the Z-axis it goes to home Y and doesn't register the limit switch which causes the machine to keep grinding its self into the limit switch and end of the C-beams. I have the correct grbl profile loaded for a sphinx 1050 and the limit switches operate appropriately to stop the movement under jog Has anyone else ran into this issue?

    Homing is handled by Grbl internally (not Interface) so more likely a wiring or faulty switch issue. Connect using a PC and CONTROL, use the Troubleshooting tab in CONTROL to test
    - that the switch presses are detected
    - and (NB) that the correct axis lights up (often see guys swopping X and Y connector for example)
