Difference (from prior major revision) (no other diffs)

Changed: 38c38
Update: Cradek & Alex_Joni pointed out that with the machine hardware config as the new [Index Only] homing method which is in head/trunk and will be part of the EMC2 v2.2 release should work just fine. This method requires the operator to manual jog the machine axis to line up witness lines for each axis prior to executing the home command. Once homing is started the machine will move in the direction defined until the first index pulse is detected. Total motion to home is less than 1 full revolution of the encoder.
