Maybe I am wrong but I am sure that some fellow ...

Hi Rick that's a really good question
I can not believe that this is doable but I would love to see a picture of the finished item just to prove me wrong
Material size and a picture would be great

Re: My new Craftsman plasma table

Hi Steve
Very nice, very nice indeed
You must have that wonderful feeling of building something that looks that good
That's the easy bit done and dusted? Now onto the real work of dialling it all in and cutting parts that match your build quality
Well done and keep going

Hi Les
