A former member over in Laramie used a HT 30 on his plasma cam table. You might do a search for the moniker "AnotherDano". I seem to remember him posting about it.

i used a pm 30 on my table for about 2 years it cut great on my 16 and 14ga it was slow on the 10ga and really slow on the 1/4" but that being said never a days trouble with it i turned out alot of fire pits and signs with it it proved to be a tough little cutter I still use it around the shop for hand cutting but have since went to the pm 45 for my table

I think that with the 30 torch you cannot use a ohmic sensor (feather touch) as there is no shielded nozzle.
If your not going to use one then not a problem

You really need to take a look at what you are planing to cut as to what you should get. The HT30 is a great little cutter for the thinner gauges of metal. But you might want to think about the HT45 if you're going to be cutting the thicker gauges. The Ht45 also allows use of a machine torch, and it has a built in port on the back for hooking up to your control system.

Just a thought, Steve

Well, Today after a very long wait I purchased a Hypertherm xp45 for my table. I ordered it from e-bay from Harris welding in Ohio, It should be here by the end of the week. I am really pumped up about finally getting to cut some plate. Sometimes you just got to spend the bucks required to get the job done. Get ready courtjester, The questions will be streaming in. 8-)
