Plasma cutter location to table?

Postby rcecarbldr » Mon May 28, 2018 3:25 pm

Basically where are you guys who own plasma tables keeping your cutters? Under the table? Along side? Overhead? Just looking for ideas as I have a 4x8 table on order and just took delivery of a Hypertherm PM85. I currently have a Torchmate 2x2 and I keep the cutter underneath it but not a big fan of that location so I'm hunting for other, maybe unique ideas. TIA

Mine is about 2 feet away from the back corner of the table. My brother who has a water bladder on his table, keeps his underneath the table.

I have my plasma cutter on a mig type cart. When not cutting, it is rolled under my water table. When in use, it sets some distance away from the table to keep it away from splashed water, etc. I sometimes use the hand torch on material away from the table, so the cart makes it easy to roll to the job.

Mine is about 5 feet from the table and up about 5 feet high, stops the dust from everything getting into the board and cleanout is less often.

I started with mine under the table, but now it is on a cheap MIG cart from Harbor Freight. It sets beside the table far enough away to stay dry. Nice to have it portable.

I have mine mounted near the back of the table and 6 feet off the floor to keep dust down. Not sure if it does but it's where I have it.
