    I built an OX based router and I am driving it with a TinyG controller. I have it pretty much nailed down, but I am having a problem with homing the machine. I am using chillipeppr to drive it.

    I have 6 switches, 3 are set to home/limit (1 per axis) and the other 3 are set to limit. All are wired to be NC

    If I just manually put the machine in about the home position and run the chillipeppr demo gcode, it performs correctly (well, it moves in the right directions, I have not installed the spindle in the mount yet) but if I home the machine, it homes Z and then it stops and blinks red furiously. I checked my wiring to the switches on X and Y and it is right... and my meter says that they are functioning correctly (getting correct continuity at the contacts on the TinyG)

    Any thoughts?
