I am measuring this by taking my calipers and measuring from the inside edge of one hole, to the inside edge of the next. The dia. of my end mill is 1/8th of an inch, so i should expect to see .875 between edges i believe, however the spacing between the first and second hole is .810 - .820 while the other gaps are what i expect and are .875 +- a few thousandths. This problem occurs on every test run i've tried.
If I alter my program slightly and add .0625 to only the first g0 on x, to 1.0625, then the spacing between edges is now properly .875 (+- a few thousandths)
these images help show the problem

these images are some test programs i ran which appear to be out of scale and may be related to this x move issue

I am also experiencing the disconnect problem (shown here: http://carbide3d.com/blog/2016/disconnect-problems/) and i'm not sure if maybe this is related to my problem.
What should I do?
