Anyone have one of the JD2 MAD tables?

Curious to hear from someone who has one of these tables. How it's going, good, not so good, etc?

I only discovered them a couple days ago and like what I see. Waiting to hear some feedback as well, although at present they don't ship international.

We have one a 5'x10' . I have nothing to compare to but it seems to work very well. Some issues I don't like are if something causes a fault you cannot just resume or jump back to that spot in the file. You have to scrap and start over or dry run to the point of failure and turn off dry run. We ordered a scribe and also a router attachment with it and those are still not ready. We ordered the machine early February. We were not told that those items would not be ready when delivered. It was 9 weeks instead of 6 or less. But the table itself is very well made. It has brush less servos as standard. As long as we get our router and plate marker and they work well I will be happy. We are in Berwick PA so if anyone is considering one they are more than welcome to see it. I am still very much a newbie so I am learning.

It takes a month or 2, to get the hang of things if you are new to CNC plasma cutting, but the tables look well built and blazing fast which is great for small gauge thickness. My Torchmate has a similar issue if we have a screw up halfway round a job (normally due to Me trying to stretch consumable life to the max) but you should be able to dry run easily enough back to the spot. Then I stick a piece of copper .5mm down over where I want to start in case I can't get close enough and hit run.
Works like a charm.
However if I just changed the consumables before failure this wouldn't be necessary.
Can you post some YouTube videos of the beast in action?

I am also interested in the JD2 tables. How is the software?

So you can stop the cut, back up and restart the cut?

We are in the processes of adding to our control software (MAD GUI) a sophisticated method for program restart. This will be released in V3 that is currently being worked on. We don't have an exact timeline on this but it shouldn't be to long. The nice thing is everyone with our plasma tables will receive this update once it comes out. There will be more features being released with this update.

I just got a 5x10 table about two weeks ago and am pleased overall with its performance. It came with the V3 software and you can restart at any point in the program now. The exception to that is the marking attachment. I had my scribber incorrectly calibrated and it still worked but a rogue slat that was 1/8" higher than the others made my torch tip touch and stopped the program. The restart at point would not work because it did not reprobe for height. This is somewhat my fault for not having the scribber calibrated correctly. I was advised by JD2 that there is a fix in the works and/or it is already available in an update but the point is moot since my scribber is now correctly calibrated.

I have a MAD 4X4 and love it. This thing is built solid and works like a hot damn. Customer support is excellant. This is my second table.
