Hello from Gippsland Victoria, I have nearly completed my plasma table of the above dimensions ,it has a air displaced water level ( bladder) and is driven by candcnc blade runner system with 620 steepers y axis with slave. Y is reduced ti 4.8 to one with belts and pulleys and x 4 to 1. Z axis is 5" unit.
Plasma unit is hypertherm power max 85.
At this stage I have machine moving via jog keys and it seems very smooth,fast and rigid .
But my biggest draw back is lack of cnc procedures also my comp skills are basic to say the least.
Although the Mach and candcnc manuals are helpful I think for a dummy like me it's like learning to ride a bike by reading a book about cycling.
If anyone out there could spare the time to run through the basics on this machine I would greatly appreciate it, more than welcome to cut any profiles you need while teaching me.
