Well I am new to this forum and I am looking to purchase a CNC Plasma Table in the next 3 to 6 months and I am trying to do my homework. I would like a 4'x8' Table and would like a system that has "open architecture" so that I have flexibility in the future. I am looking at the Torchmate 2 and building my own table or the Plasmaroute XR series with some upgrades. I am looking for feedback from owners and users of these tables to help me make my final decision between the two. I like the fact that I could build my own table and save a few dollars doing so with the Torchmate 2. I am open to other recommendations as well.
