Should I retrofit to candcnc

Post by stompjrkz400 » Wed Nov 13, 2019 7:40 am

Hey folks, I have an old tortchmate 2 table, all aluminum. Running a new 45xp.

The table is very sturdy bu step Motors are terribly under sized and I can only cut at about 200 IPM and the torch height controller is terrible.

I'm looking at the candcnc popular discount bundle I think, it looks like everything that I want.

I would love to hear feedback from a few of you guys using the system

Thanks much

Devon C

They have a retrofit it specifically for Torchmate owners with your complaints. I bought one and it has been fantastic, a lot of bang for the buck in my opinion and C&CNC is on this site all the time answering questions and helping out. I say go for you I highly doubt you will be dissapointed.

hopefully i get a phone call from them soon on a price. one thing i'm trying to figure out is if i can use my current torch holder mechanism on the torchmate & just replace the smart motor with the stepper that comes in the Candcnc bundle.

I suggest you either contact CandCNC via their web form or join the Support Forum to get faster direct feedback. You can also find the Orphan Rescue Kits in the online catalog .https://www.candcnc.net/store-home/tm-rescue-kit/ Note that the kits comes with a Z axis because the "torch lifter" of the TM design would take a lot changes to make it work.
