Hello I am with Eagle Plasma.
Thanks for the interest in our systems.
We are a small start up company located in rural Arkansas, that has recently opened its doors to the public.
We have been researching and developing a low cost easy to use and vastly simplified CNC cutting system for a little over 3 years now.
The system you are inquiring about is the latest version of our systems (version 8), it is built around belt drive technology, using basic stepper motors, and no frills.
We have worked at keeping the price as low as possible from the start. We have done this to help bring the wonders of CNC to a whole new market of home businesses, hobbyists, and other potential customers that simply could not afford the $10,000 plus systems available by others.
The systems you have seen on Ebay and our site, are all cut by our own table (the same system we sell), our oldest table has been running for over a year now, and we have had great success with its function.
We use a standard V groove bearing, and off the shelf parts, to keep costs low.
The other benefit is ease of repair for the unlikely event the system becomes damaged, you will not be locked into us for replacement parts down the road.
It is easy and low cost to “upgrade” the system too most any cut length, as we are using basic angle iron rails for our gantry to ride on.
I personally use the system to cut metal (plasma cutting), and plastics (routing, with a mill bit) all on one table.
I use a Roto Zip with a mill bit for my plastic cutting, to make our electronics boxes.
I don't use THC myself, as I have not had any problems without it, so I haven't seen a need for it yet.
As I come up with new ideas and receive new requests from our potential customers, I will make, test, and implement, new systems.
Our current prototype project, is a 2X2 table, built on the same low cost concept, and will be available soon (we are in the testing stages of the product now).
I hope I have been able to answer some of your questions, and look forward to hearing from you soon, if you feel our product is rite for you, or if you just have a question, don't hesitate to call, we are willing to help.
