Not so fast on a 4x8 machine. Accuracy between homing has been good. If it isn't, slow it down a bit and make sure your targets are adjusted with minimal clearance (close). Should have stated that the 250 is XY and the Z is 90. The second touch never gets to that feedrate.

Interesting, seems to me like its easier to stop a car moving at 20mph instead of 200...I would rather have the car crash into the wall (if it HAS to crash, at 20mph instead of 200. The carnage might be easier to fix :) )
The routers I have done, I have taught my clients to use the PARK feature when they shut down for the evening, OR manually jog the axis (fast jog) close to the home switches before pressing cycle start to home....

It would be a nice addition though, if you could have a slower second seek option, much in the way you can have fast/slow probing settings.
