Hi Plasmaplasma,
It's a good idea. What size is your plasma table? Water table or not?

I like it, I'm a big fan of KISS. Your V-wheels and inverted angle for the X axis are great. How did you fasten the angle to the frame, weld? Did you make the V-wheels or where did you get them.

- Machine is 4x4 cutting area and 5.5x5.5 footprint. It is build of 3x3 rect tubes 1/8 wall.
- Those V wheel are from BCbearing, and expensive 90$ each.
I wanted to order it from mcmastercar company but they are not shipping to Canada!

If you clamp something, hanging down about 10 inches, to the shuttle, simulating a plasma torch, and put a dial indicator to it, how much deflection do you get?

I hope I will connect belt and motors next week, so I can try it.

I plan to build water tray and distance between material and gantry will be about 5" or less.

Machine is maybe to high. I will have manual THC, with UP and Down switch, and speed adjusting knob. With a simple DC motor.
