Homing Question

Hello. I set my machine up and it is square and flat. When I bring the why axis all the way to the end there is a slight gap (see photo). Is this acceptable or do I need to unscrew it and set up again?

Just a note. This is my 3rd attempt at squaring and setting up and the results have been the same every time.

I never really paid attention to mine to see if there was a gap. As long as the machine is square and homes properly, I don’t think it will hurt anything. Others might have more to offer.

I ended up just accepting the gap, a little different from one side vs the other.
It came down to when I would screw the machine down, maybe my screws were not perfectly centered or vertically straight, and the result would pull the machine a little off into whatever direction.
I gave up trying to make everything PERFECTLY square.
My end results are very acceptable!!
Besides, as long as both Y ball screws are coordinated, the movements should be straight.
If I end up losing an 1/8 or even a 1/4” in total Y travel. I can live with it :man_shrugging:t2:
But that’s me!!

@Jgolden4455 You’re OK. Watch the other axis when you home xyz and you will see they do that too. Also refer to the Onefinity video fine tuning stall homing to see how it works…

I was having the same problem where just the left side y would bounce back just like yours. I watched the video and tried lowering the 1st suggested setting from 1 to .9 and it fixed it by stopping the bounce. I have laser printed an 816mm x 816mm 10mm crossline grid on my wasteboard that allows me to pinpoint my bit or laser very quickly. Not homing properly would mess up my accuracy.
