Has anyone had any experience with GoTorch

Postby Foster1447 » Wed Aug 29, 2012 1:18 pm

I am going to invest in a CNC cutter and I came across GoTorch.com. I am just going to start out of the garage making small parts and signs/artwork, so I dont have a bunch of room for a large setup yet. I was thinking of going with a Torchmate 2x2, but this GoTorch seems nice. Has anyone dealt with these cutters yet?

Going by their website looks like your right Gary, looks like they are offering an entry level version at a very good price for internet purchase only, but as they state this is a basic system which comes with no height control and basic software and offers only a comprehensive manual as back up support. You will be able to upgrade to a larger size, add height control and better software being design edge through the user community but unfortunately you cant see any of that info without having a serial number from an already purchased system to gain entry to that user community.

From what I have been reading in the forums here, it sounds like I should just upgrade from the start with the auto height control. ?????

I would recommend the full function height control....the PlasmaCam height control is one of the best on any entry level plasma tables.

The Go Torch is clearly a PlasmaCam built machine...minus a few frills. It clearly is designed to offer the PlasmaCam performance and support....but at a low price to compete with other companies offerings.

If it works as well as the regular PlasmaCams....it is a great deal. Remeber...it needs a good plasma torch!
