You could do this with some resistance measuring between the router bit and a plate which you place on the bed. I do it on sight. Got used to do it like that with my 3D printer.
I switched to lead screws too. Will try to find some time to update the introduction of the article.
Cool! Step size has to be defined in the grbl settings! If it does 10 mm when it should have done 5, you have to set the number of steps per mm to half of the current setting.
