Re: Looking for slider mechanism for Air Scribe.

It's how i did mine, but the older 650 box did not have a plug-in out on it.. I used the Table I/0 cards Relay, and works out the same in the long run.

One of them is a back up,depending how I feel.Just changed over to the Victor in the carrier yesterday. Put the Hyper away for a bit.. The blue airline goes to my Dotco Scribe. Yes, two way ac...

Re: Off Brand Torch for Cutmaster 52?

The shielded consumables are not conductive to anything going to the torch. Not on my torch anyway.. The tip is, but it does not touch the shield at any time. Are you using the un-shielded 9-8218 cup? I get excellent consumable life with my one torch. I have both the Hypertherm 65, and Cutmaster 82(...

Re: Off Brand Torch for Cutmaster 52?

You will only see one aftermarket torch that will work with the cutmaster.. It took a long time to get around the ATC patent, but Thermacut has done it.. Best just find a SL-60 torch on Ebay..You can change the head out on your Radnor MC-60 torch to make it a SL-60.. Another good option

Re: Looking for slider mechanism for Air Scribe.

I used one of these.. Mine had a bit longer stroke, but this is plenty. I like the dual action myself, but each to their own.. :)

Re: Bevel Issue - 3/4plate - PM85

.375 cut with 45 amps.. It should be almost bevel free or close. Real nice amp to thickness ratio for the Powermax machines . .750 will have less bevel when cutting on 65 amps.. Try those two things before you move on..Since you are edge starting anyway, the 65 should give you a better look..I say g...

Re: Plate Marker speeds, down pressure, and engraver setting

1 inch if Travel works well too.. More would certainly not hurt anything. I have stops to adjust for other things.. If I stick with the same stroke travel (Not the same as the slide travel) The timing always stays the same, and zero adjustment is needed. Plug, and play that way.. :)That type of rail...

Re: Help...need a finer detail plasma.

Sometimes you can cheat very thin material by using a water table to control the burn-off of very thin edges.. It just one more tool to use..I agree, it will be quite hard to get much thinner Kerf in Air Plasma then with the powermax systems. You could match it, but highly unlikely to get any better...

Re: Needing assistance, Thermal Dynamics Arcing from electrode to tip

There is a bushing made for the the Start Cartridge that hold it into the fire position for High freq machines..It will not come with the start Cartridge. Since you have a later model torch on your older machine, it could help with that issue. Like I said before, not all machines need them, but it s...

Re: Bevel issue made me punch my kids in the face!

Probably why it messed up in the first place. I have yet to replace a O-ring on any machine I own. I have the o-rings too..(For years, and years) :) Silicone Dielectric Grease is what you want to use. It's what Victor/Esab, and Hypertherm send out with some of their Consumable kits..

Re: Needing assistance, Thermal Dynamics Arcing from electrode to tip

Cutmaster 100 is a high freq start machine. Maybe you need to find the bushing that holds the start cartridge in the fire postilion. They have one for when using the one torch on high freq machines.. Some need it, and others do not.. Unless your machine is a cutmaster 101, then it's High freq start....

Re: Bevel issue made me punch my kids in the face!

Use the Powermax 45 cut chart,and now there should be some for the 45 XP available.. I seen some great results with the 65 amp nozzles on .500 (factory 30 ipm) Could just be the steel itself or something is up with your THC.. I generally just use my Victor at 50/55-60-70 amp nozzles for .500 :)Nice ...

I don't think your machine is 15 years old.. I had one of the very first ones around 2004. That said, I did sell it to my friend a few years ago, and it still is going strong..(right by his Hypertherm 85) I would keep the Thermal dynamics for what you cut ,if it can be fixed reasonable.

Re: Pm65 vs pm45xp

Air down feed if fine, and what is used.It's using air pressure to set the down force. That is why I favor a floating head setup.. No more slamming the stylus into the work, and spending half you life figuring out all the parameters, that are always changing with so many slide setups.

Re: Pm65 vs pm45xp

You will certainly miss the 65 amp consumables if you get above .500. To me the 45 Xp screams portable,Marking with one has limited value for me, because I can layout excellent lines with my scribe setup.. Very few people really takes the time to setup a scribe correctly, so they think Plasma markin...
