The "Y" endstop is on the "X" carriage?

    Am I really not getting this or is that text in the manual wrong?

    I thought the Y endstop is the one on the Y carriage. The switch that hits the front upper right corner when the y carriage moves towards me.

    The confusion is possibly between the "endstop" (the screw that hits the micro switch) and the "micro-switch" itself.

    The "Y" (front back movement) has the "Y" micro switch fitted on the "X" motor carriage as this carriage moves in the "Y" direction (backwards and forwards)

    The "Y" end stop is on the "Y" axis front bracket ........... so the front back movement hits it.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The "Y" axis micro switch could just as easily have been mounted on the "Y" axis front bracket.

    Then the "Y" axis endstop would then have been on the "X" motor mount.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Also, I don't think there is a part called the "Y carriage", so using this term may add to confusion.

    In the context of the wiki, it was talking about the switch. And the confusion of the naming of the x motor mount carriage when it moves in the Y axis. I think.

    Thanks guys! Good thing I wasn't going mad :) I did have it right and the text confused me and it was late. Adding to it was the photo showing the wire connecting to X on the RUMBA even the text says connect it to Y.

    Personally I would just call the X motor carriage for the Y carriage. In this case the right side of the Y carriage.

    Update: Thanks for updating the text @Chase.Wichert
