Re: Looking for a good set of plans.

I can see why one would think hardened and non-hardened would be a problem, but in practice this theory is false. Mechmate CNC Router tables have been running for a decade with hardened v-bearings on angle iron, and that is a very heavy gantry, and they work like a charm all day every day.

Re: Off Brand Torch for Cutmaster 52?

BrandX, I have the 64006515 cup on my MC60 torch. When I purchased the Cutmaster 52 (Radnor) a year ago, the only consumables I could find were at AirGas and it was almost $100 for 5tips and 5 electrodes delivered. I was very pleased to discover 5tips and 5electrodes on ebay today for $50 delivered ...

Re: Best budget minded THC for thin corrugated steel?

Anyone using a miniTHC? Can you report performance on vertical speed and fluidity of height correction? I contacted the manufacturer about vertical speed and he responded with: "The loopback time for minithc is 80 microseconds -- or 0.00008 s that's comparable to mach3 1/25000 s = 0.00004 s min...

Re: Best budget minded THC for thin corrugated steel?

Thanks for correcting me motoguy. I watched the intro vi only and did not have on the sound. I thought it was acting like a scanner. Shows how people can be duped. It looked cool.

Re: Best budget minded THC for thin corrugated steel?

Dingo, if you look at tcaudle's comment about the Proma's slow relays, it will have a very slow ipm vertically for cutting a wave, such as corrugated. Neuron told me that both the lite and the simplicity talk with Mach3; however, the Lite can be programmed by the user for the cut from within Mach; w...

Re: Best budget minded THC for thin corrugated steel?

Dingo745, I emailed Neuron as I try to understand THC and asked what the Simplicity vertical speed limit is. A few minutes ago, I received a response. Andrew said the maximum speed is 10000 mm/min (393ipm), but this value depends on the torch slide parameters (pulses in unit value). Simplicity motio...

Re: Best budget minded THC for thin corrugated steel?
