    Default Plasma cutting is messy.

    Hi Weld ON

    I have built a cnc plasma cutter and would like to let you know that the process makes a lot of mess.

    Combining a mill into it would mean a lot of cleaning every time you want to mill something.

    Are you thinking to have the plasma table on top of your milling surface?

    If you are going to have a water table (which I highly recommend to catch most of the crap) they are heavy even if you drain them. The mess they produce is abrasive and gritty - not something you want any where near a mill.

    I think you might be better off having one or the other.

    Steve

    Looking good.
    What is the overall gear reduction there - about 25:1 ?

    What max travel rates are you expecting in plasma mode

    Thanks.
    For some reason my brain saw a double reduction gearing setup - which it obviously isnít when I look again now!
