Re: Z axis problems

I have had this problem in the past until I started putting a thin piece of copper sheet between the omnic sensor and the shield ring - solved that problem then.

Re: Hypertherm 65 3/8 plate

Check Hypertherm's specs for 3/8. I use a Hyper 1250 and get beautiful cuts with very little slag on the bottom. I use 65 Amps, pierce @ .100, cut @ .06, 41 inches per minute.

Re: Cleaning up stainless and aluminum cut edges

I'm sure you know this already but DO NOT use wire wheels, flappers or grinding disc's that have been used on carbon steel on stainless unless you want rust spots.

Re: What useful features does X8 offer vs X7?

I upgraded from 6 to 8 and should have saved my $ until at least X9. I generally update every second issue but am not impressed w/ X8 that much and the handling of nodes just pisses me off. But then I am old and senile.

Re: Secrets of Stainless...

Yeah, what Jim said if you follow the above post. The tip is CLOSE, .02 when cutting. Pierce it as close as you dare and get the torch down to cut height QUICK.

Re: Still going like hotcakes...

Bought the monogram files from Pinterest awhile back- went to use them today and can't find them. If I could remember the file names I could find with a search. Anyone remember the file names?

Do any of you folks know if there is anything published anywhere that will give information about bumper attachment dimensions for all vehicles? Sure would be handy to have for design work.
