    Convert!!!!!

    Hiya Bert!
    Been a while..
    Go to Artsoft.something or other... Maybe you can convert the thing to run on Mach3? My CNC table is down right now and I am getting a hands on lessin in CNC controls! Its actually kinda cool! The break down licks, but the lessons rock!

    So maybe one day I wll be ablet o build myself a funky chain driven CNC table of sorts.. That would be a great addition to the shop!

    Hey I bought a new CNC mill Too! built by Novakon

    Hope this doesnt constitute hijacking the thread.. Sorry if it does!

    Hope youre well Bert! I need a vacation old man.. Got my passport too.........

    Cheers!

    Rick.

    you might be surprised.. the plasmacam is not a high production super duty tool but is not a toy either.. for my purposes it works out just fine..and will cut the occasional one inch piece.. but to each his own.. good luck in your quest..
    thanks

    Addl Info: That (plasmacam) table coupled with a Hypertherm Powermax 1000.. allows the power to cut fairly thick stuff and with the Finecut consumables.. it makes really nice cuts on the stuff thinner than 12ga.

    i was looking into plasmacam, but to be honest, it wasn't heavy duty enough, and the price tag was way too high for what it is. for a couple thousand more, you can get a 4x8 torchmate that'll handle 1 1/4" plate

    started a topic CNC Plasma?

    CNC Plasma?

    Anyone on here running a CNC plasma table?

    about 2 years ago i was close to pulling the trigger on a 4x8 table, but never did. i've kicked myself ever since because i spent 12K on laser cutting and the plasma would've only cost me 16K to startup. I'm thinking about starting to put some feelers out and see if I can get some business for it.
Working...
