Re: New to me DIY 4x8 table build

Going back together. The cable track will be here this week and I'll get it all assembled. The paint is what it is. I wasn't setup to spray. Brushing didn't turn out so great.

Re: New to me DIY 4x8 table build

Plasma cutter arrived. Razorweld Viper Cut 30. It will get me cutting. When budget allows, I'll upgrade to a Hypertherm. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170607/bacf2f8f762030ef0f1cbe9cb20b3aad.jpg Had some help last night on the plasma table frame. It's getting close to being sanded down and read...

Do you have photos to show how you did the grate and the slats?

Re: New to me 4x8 with mystery gantry

The Deep groove is a G540 with a 48V power supply THE 300 is a old MACH based THC that uses a parallel port and needs three inputs . I assume it uses the G540 as the Breakout (single port). The MP3600 is a LINUX based software and hardware "Front End" that comes with a PC preloaded. Its 1...

Re: New to me DIY 4x8 table build

Thanks for the idea! That's simpler than what I had been thinking. What's a good overall depth for the water table? Added water table cross supports made out of 1.5" square tubing I had on hand. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170605/ebc411f8a4733168860f8ed73d4ac2fe.jpg I'm going to sand it ...

Re: New to me DIY 4x8 table build

Got the motion working with Mach3 on Windows 10 and a UC100. Going to swap the UC100 out for a Ethernet Smoothstepper so I can run the THC-300. The steppers run the gantry quite nicely. I had this nice Hoffman enclosure so I decided to use it to house all of the controls. Welded studs on the table f...

New to me DIY 4x8 table build

I picked this guy up off Craigslist over the weekend. I don't know the origin of the gantry and I'd like to know. If you recognize it, please let me know! I have pretty much decided there's a couple paths this build will go depending on how things go along the way. I have a UC100 arriving tomorrow t...

Anyone have one of the JD2 MAD tables?
