Changing my step mode to 1/8 steps (the Xylotex board appears to be defaulted to this and I didn't feel like opening it up to change it) and reducing my ipm to .3 and acceleration to around 20 and it appears to work.
Haven't actually cut anything so that is today's project. Then I will get started fine tuning the axis. Right now my x axis is about a quarter of an inch off level. Hopefully I have enough play in my rails to adjust it out.
