Re: Overcut issue or ????

45 would work.. Standard model 45 specs was used before the 45 XP came out.. I've seen my friend cut with 65 amp book specs, and it was just excellent. Tons of brackets, and i looked them all over good.. Was really better then I could get with my Hypertherm 65. I could really do better with my Victo...

Re: Overcut issue or ????

I would not use 85 amps for best quality on .500 simple as that.. Depending on shape, the loop corners (Triangle) Tangent lead-in, and out can get excellent results.. Don't make me post my Thermal dynamics .750 ms cut at 60 amps.. :) So I will post a 90 amp cuts out of 1 inch MS (Esab) :mrgreen: one...

Re: Trying to hook up sl100 machine torch to cutmaster 101

The machine torch is really made for a pendant to control the torch manually. track burner etc... I just used the plug/wire off of the pendent to go to my start pins on my cnc control. The SL-100 SV torch is the automation torch for CNC. Works much better overall in timing from the first cut to seco...

Re: 45A cut chart differences...PM45XP vs PM85

I like the new format of the 45 XP charts as the kerf width is included...instead of in a separate chart. Jim Colt

I posted Esab had that format with the PT-37 torch for a real long time. Since i used Thermal dynamics, and Hypertherm,I could not understand why it took so long to figure that out.?

Re: Dan's 5x10 PPLLC & CandCNC Build

With my very low drag z slide/correct spring, I have found absolutely zero need for a sensor setup, Down to the .030 anyway. (Handsaw blades) Most people really never setup refine the z slide to get where is works flawless. (IMO) If the floating head is not tuned, then the sensor is a good option.

I ditched the little cheap roller setups, and just use a bent tang. Slides past, and back from trouble areas.. Old Microwaves have some pretty good switches in them. Found in my friends junk collection.. :mrgreen:

I like the versatility of bolt together 80/20 tables.. Plenty strong, but expensive to do correctly.. Way more cost then steel overall to get it there.

Depend on your machine,Software, and consumables used also.. The size/shape of hole matters..

That is the purpose on thicker materiel. To Minimize the damage from a pierce. Really only found on high-end plasma software, and cutters.

Re: What low amp/non book setting do you use for thin material?

It's kind of funny Hypertherm offers a standard 30 amp nozzle for the 30XP, Just not for a 45XP. I know it's not for a machine torch, but looks like they seem to get the lower amp nozzles to work there. :)
