End stop and probe How-to's?

This is the one. People use it on their X-Carves (using the X controller) and that uses GRBL, so I don't see why we couldn't.

Re: Gatton CNC Build

I have noticed one thing as I have been toying around. even though I set my x,y,z0s after the program is running and either it finishes or I stop it and have it go back to 0..... it stops typically an inch ...
