    CNC: Having a Second Home

    Commercial CNC mills typically have a home position which defines a physical location. This is the center of rotation of the spindle with respect to some feature on the table. I did buy some nice home switches for my little hobby CNC mill but was not happy with their repeatability. This article presents a low tech method to accomplish this same goal.
