Dave always seemed cool when speaking with him. I only hope that he still honors all of the promises he made over the last year and a half. After installing higher torque steppers and rebuilding my machine, it STILL does not work properly.
How recently did you speak to Dave, Mike?

I dont know if they make the dyna6000 controller, but ditco of kent washington made the dyna4000 controller for dyna. Ive spoken with ditco before and they were pretty nice.
I have a dyna4000 that had problems (auto torch height portion not working) and ended up putting in Tom Caudles CandCnc hardware and had it running 3 days after cutting out the dyna4000. ( actually about 3 hrs of work, but I was doing other things to the table also that took up some time.)
I know its heartburn not to get what you paid for, but you might want to talk to tom or some other company and see what it would take to get your machines going.
Thank you for your input lowpull. I have spoken with Tom Caudle and two other companies that have the ability to retrofit the machine with a new controller or repair the existing 6000 but the cost is about the same, $3500. I already blew my wad to get this one and get it configured for my needs, $5000 regenerative blower, $3200 in wiring, plumbing, spoilboard, replaced the warped PE base they supplied me, etc. Now with over $30,000 invested in it I don't have the capital to invest more money in it. More importantly I refuse to waste another minute of my life on this worthless machine. I spent six hours a day for the first six weeks on the phone with the tech support trying to diagnose the problems over the phone. My list of complaints goes on but I have work to do.
P.S. I get all of my parts cut by my neighbor here at our business park on his Chinese CNC router that works flawlessly.
Does anyone know if the dyna6000 used the same pinouts and connectors as the 4000?
I was told by the tech guy(in 2008) at DCNC that the 4000 and 6000 were "supposed" to have the same ports and pinouts. The Xml files "should" be the same. I'm try to find someone really happy with the THC and get a copy of the Plasma XML . Mine responds what I think is extremely slow.
Hi, I'm a newbie. I'm excited about buying my first cnc. I spoke with Dyna over a year ago and was impressed with the dvd they sent and got the feeling they were a straight-up company. I now have an opportunity to get a Dyna machine at a very attractive price and am scared to death by the negative posts. Should I run?
Evaluate it like any other used product. Does it run ok?
The table and components are industry standard parts, so they can be replaced.
If the controller fails, you can replace that with your own that you have made up. Or go to Tom Caudle and see what it takes for one of his systems. For a stepper system probably about 2 grand.
I put my own controller together for my Dyna table with some of Toms components when I couldnt get the dyna4000 controller to work right.
You can pm me if you have detailed questions.
Spoke with the owner who says it only ran for about 5 minutes and has not been used since. I have not seen the machine run. He never learned to draw files or convert them to G code so he wants out. Original $ was 16K. (?) A lot of stuff is included (computer, plasma mount, software, etc) but dont want to end up replacing stuff on a new machine. Maybe I'll pass
If that is the one I think it is (atlanta ?) Then it is probably a pretty good deal. From the picture I saw it looks like a dyna4000 controller. Which worked ok for me except for the torch height controller portion for plasma cutting. And the original manufacturer of the controller (not dynacnc)is going to look at that for me even though I have a different controller now. If I knew of somebody close to it that was looking for a machine, I would send them to him.
Feel free to rehash Mike.
Mr penguin: I will sell you mine for a heck of a deal! In all seriousness, the 4000 was reasonably reliable from what I know of it and Tom Caudle can help you should you have any problems down the line. Stay clear of the 6000 and the 7000, if the 7000 ever made it to production that is.....
