We've all been there with you :D take a breather and come back to it tomorrow.

What specifically runs into what rail?

Also any chance you can post a video (e.g. from a cell phone)?

Yes. To reverse the direction of an axis, swap the wires of one pair (just one pair, not both!).

Thanks to all for the replies
went back and read thru it again and to my dismay uuhh and I have also found another Easter egg axis it is L and I have labeled my forehead with it

so I should just swap it on the stepper board and have no troubles
has anyone reversed an axis seems my z is backwards also tried the blue and green but it didn't like that. did not run even close to as smooth as the backward wiring

If one has started with the suggested value of

$6=28

Then if the Z-axis is reversed you should enter

$6=156

Yes, just type that into the command box. I like to hit the reset button on the arduino, just to make sure it persists, but I don't think that's necessary.

Blue and green belong to separate coils. They won't reverse the direction of the motor.

You'll want to swap black and green, or red and blue.

Hope this helps.

you guys are the best !!!!!
used the command to swap z worked like a charm
now the x is reversed and after that it should be fine I know I saw the command will look around for it
again thanks for putting up with the redundant questions

this is why I went with the shapeoko the user community is the best !!!!
