How to get the machine origin with LINUXCNC

Today I tested the LinuxCNC controlling all 3 stepper motors (one for each axis) connected on TB6560-4V3 board.

Everything worked as expected, but zeroing the HOME axes manually is very boring. Then I decided to search how to do it automatically.

I found this nice post exampling the process:

I will need to connect the switches limiters (end-stoppers) to my CNC first to get it working. BTW I decided to post about it with the link to original post because it could be useful for other people.
