    I got my Lead 1010 up and running using a Black Box and the new Open Build's Interface.
    jogging to trigger all 3 limit switches shows the red LED's on the switches and
    will show X Y Z blinking on the Interface screen. However it does not stop movement
    nor is there any beeping alarm from the Interface

    Is there any chance that a warning beep can be added to the
    Interface when triggering a Limit switch? I almost crushed a couple limit switches today.

    Also jogging to trigger all 3 limit switches and setting to Zero and then turning off Black Box and
    turning it back ON shows on my machine X-35.66 Y- 10.55 Z - 9.54

    So why is it not staying at Zero? I haven't moved anything. Just turned it back on.

    Refer to gnea/grbl
    Please read the Grbl wiki :) it explains all the settings. Use your computer to run OpenBuilds CONTROL, connect to the BlackBox, and setup the limit switches correctly first

    Can't. Computer is in my house and the CNC is in the shop.
    Can I just bring the power supply and Black Box in and plug it into my PC?

    Just BlackBox, it can power up over USB to access settings
