W axes calibration
#11
You only have 3 zeros: an X zero, a Y zero and a Z zero.

Each axis determines an offset between the work piece and tool, that's it. The zero is just some arbitrary point that you set so that it is convenient for you to measure from for whatever piece you are working on.
It will be different for each and every part.

In the case of your W and Z axis, they both change the relation between the work piece and the tool along the same axis, namely up and down. If you move the knee, the part moves up and down. If you move the spindle, the tool moves up and down. Either way, the net effect is the same: the vertical distance between the part and the tool changes. You sum the W and Z axis so that you always know the total distance between the part and the tool.
