Re: check moisture in air?

Somewhere in the last few weeks on here there was a post on this subject. Someone said something about blowing the air across a cold mirror. If you see any moisture on the mirror, then you have moisture in your air. (At least that's kinda how I remember it!) ;)

Re: Temp control help on oven

I'm assuming that the SSR's you have are rated for the current you're putting thru them. You have to mount SSR's on pretty good sized heat sinks to dissipate the heat generated by them. If you have them heat sinked and they still are not opening the circuit to the heating coils, them perhaps they ar...

Re: Powder Coat Gun?

I'm using a Nitro Faze cup gun from Powder 365. It works very well for everything I do, and the cups are not that expensive, I have around a dozen cups with the more popular colors I use in them. When I need a different color than whats in the gun, I unscrew the cup on it, blow out the gun, and scre...

Re: parts look better with a drag tip than with a shielded tip on plasma cam

The drag tip has built in offset. So when you use the drag tip you are getting a bigger cut gap than when you use the other tip.

Re: Torch head diving down when cutting

It sounds like your Torch Height Control is sensing the voltage spike from the torch starting, and is trying to lower the torch to lower the voltage to what you have the cut voltage set at. There should be a setting for THC delay, which keeps the THC off for a set period of time until the voltage se...

What you want to do is called indexing. Take a look at this Youtube video, it should help you figure out how to do it.

Re: Not cutting through after pierce powermax 65

I agree with acoutjester, there was a thread on this a while back. The way I remember it, the fine cuts are very finicky about the settings they run at. After they have been run a bit they settle down. Perhaps the following link will help you out. [url]ww.plasmaspider.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=187...

Re: Sprocket drawing program?

I have used Sprocketeer to design gears and it worked very well. I haven't tried Inkscape as Acourtjester suggests, but it seems like it should work good also. I have also used the program in the link below, and it worked very well also.

Tig Art

This has nothing to do with plasma, although I'm sure several of us are welders also. I thought some of you may appreciate this art form. Certainly got me to thinking! welded_celtic_knot.jpg Celtic Knot2.jpg And a link to the artist of the 2nd picture. https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/arronexus/

Re: Battery Backup UPS Power Source

You need to look up the wattages pulled by each of those 3 components and add them up to get the wattage of the UPS you need, Since your plasma cutter will be down, you just need the UPS to last long enough to safely shut down your 3 components.

Re: Any idea why I am getting angled cuts?

You might try rotating your torch 90 degrees and see if the angularity moves to the other 2 sides, which might tell you whether it's the torch or something else.

Re: Battery Backup UPS Power Source

My UPS has two rows of plugs, one row is a standby row, and the other row is off the battery via an inverter. So you need to pay attention to which UPS you buy.

I've run my computer and controller from a UPS for years and had no problems at all. I set it up mainly to help filter any noise out of the AC.

Re: Air scribe v s electric spindle motor

I use an air scribe. If you look close you can see the individual "dots". It takes a bit of twiddling to get the air pressures just right, and you have to have an in-line oiler to lube the scribe. Several members on here use a Dremel type tool and seem to have good luck with it. I've been ...
