This is my first post here.
I couldn't find an answer to my question with searchs so:
I am looking at getting a bare bones Torchmate 1 DIY kit and make a 4x4 table for it.
I am short cash and have found a Hypertherm Powermax 900 for sale cheap that has harldly been used.
I emailed Torchmate to see if this unit would be ok to use.
The response i got was:
"If you want to purchase our Arc Voltage Height Control unit I would NOT recommend this cutter. Itís not high frequency so it can work with the machine if you just want to get a ďmachine torchĒ holder and attach it to the gantry that way. But, if you want Height control, youíll need to get a cutter that is compatible with it and the Pmax900 has never been tested so we donít know if it will or not."
While i am going to attempt to get by with just a hand torch end and no height control to start with, i want to to get the height control as soon as i can afford it for obvious reasons.
Has anyone used with Hypertherm P 900 with the height control to know if it works ok? I know getting a new 1000 series would be better, but for less than half the price i thought i'd ask.
