    Could someone show me some examples of mounting limit switches for Z axis home/safety limit? Some pics or point me to a thread or two! Appreciate your help!

    Sure, but what machine? It will be different depending on the type of z axis you have.

    @SpringBob - Attached is the Z-Axis Limit Switch mounting instructions I used for my Workbee. Whilst not the same machine as yours, it may provide some pictorial guidance of how the wires could be routed.

    For reference, it would have been a nightmare in my case to install the Z-Axis Limit Switch once the machine was full assembled. I read advice on this forum advising to install it much earlier in the build. Again, probably not much help to you at this stage.

    Yes, very helpful! I have spotted a location for it and have devised a plan. Thank you for your kind response.
