It seems that my X & Z Axis are Reversed but after checking the connections they appear to be correct. I am assuming they are labeled correctly. When I jog the CNC the X controls the Z and vice-versa. When I initialize, clear all off sets then send it to SE corner the spindle will descend and plunge into the work piece as it moves to SE.
When you initialize, Z (up down) should move first. If that doesn’t happen, sounds like you swapped X and Z connectors somewhere. Switch them at the controller.
