Hi,

Not sure if I understand the problem correctly. You could try

\starttext
\startMPpage[offset=3pt]
  ahlength := 20;
  linejoin := mitered;
  drawarrow origin--(40,0) withpen pencircle scaled 5;
\stopMPpage

\startMPpage[offset=1cm]
  ahlength := 20;
  linejoin := mitered;
  drawarrow origin--(40,0) withpen pencircle scaled 5;
\stopMPpage
\stoptext

Compile with context.
