Incorrect X axis readings

I am actually having 2 issues that with any luck, someone can tell me what I am doing wrong. The first issue is upon startup, sometimes it is displaying in inches and other times it displays in metric. The bigger issue I am having is incorrect readings. I am finally getting my Journeyman up and running after months of it sitting in the original boxes. When I move the X axis from the homed position (far left) to the far right using the controller, it reads 30" but has moved 48" or close to it. I feel confident it is something I am doing or have done but I have no clue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

See if this helps with the second issue…

I really appreciate the quick response. I do not know what ballscrew I have, but I checked and confirmed it is set at 10mm travel per rev. I am assuming this is my issue. After homing the machine and then moving it to the far right, it reads 32.25 inches.

I believe for Journeyman it is set to 16mm not 10mm.

Hey Pete,

which is Woodworker’s workarea width, not Journeyman’s. You got to set it according to the howto linked above.

That is correct and it resolved my issue. Thank you.
