    Hello,

    I was just wondering , when i buy my ox( i will make a lot of cabinet sides etc )

    if i place limit switches can i use these also to home my machine so that everytime my X,Y, Z axes ar always in the same spot before a job even if the power goes out or i set the machine of.

    then when i start up the machine again i set it to 0 X ,0 Y, 0 Z and its always the same position ,this
    is very important to me for drilling cabinet holes they must be every time at the same position.

    Correct this is how this works. You can also use these as your home switches and have offsets setup for different material positions you use a lot.
    Hope this helps
