I thought this was pretty slick. Really impressed with the "precision"

That is very cool. Any time you get involved cutting 3D objects, it definitely gets more impressive.

I need to hit the lottery. I would have the coolest workshop.
I would find people with really cool stuff (like you guys) to help me fill it with.

Both of those 3D cutters are awesome. The beveling is awesome.


Here is a pic of my homemade cutting machine in my garage.



It started life as a DynaTorch gantry with my table and water system, but the DynaTorch system was a total loss, I was losing a servo motor at least once a month and they cost 1k each. I decided to retro fit it with a sevro package from CandCnc using Mach3. Best thing I did for it. No more trouble and hassles. Cuts great from 4 to 200ipm with no tuning. Massive power increase too. The piece being cut is 3"

Thats an awesome setup! Just like he asked is that oxy/acetylene or plasma?

That HKS high def plasma above is in our equipment line, we sell those as well. We do not rebuild them though. The beveled cutting is pretty awesome, and the edge quality on those things is outstanding for a burning machine.

Kinda, I use propane (lp) as the gas. It cuts cleaner and usually dross (slag) free. I have cut 5" before in limited amounts and it does great, handling over 3" material becomes a problem though. I also have a 100amp plasma that can be switched back and forth.

Lucky you to both live in Greensboro and playtime for a job!

Ya, machine can do both. The oxy/fuel gear adds a lot of weight to the gantry. I think that is why the nema34 servos work so much better than the nema23s did. The 23s were set to rapid at 1k inches per min, I think it was the decel that was killing them. Animatics said the motors were being back driven and they would not warranty them. So i figure it must be the sudden stop at the end LOL. I slowed the top end down on the new system to 680ipm rapids and it is still plenty fast for me, it can still knock me down!

We are hoping to relocate to Summerfield/Browns summit in the next couple of years. Love it there.

Yes, I am very lucky. I love NC and I get to play with all this wonderful (sometimes) equipment all day long. Summerfield is just down the street from me, as I live on the northwest side of Greensboro. But I just signed a contract tonight with the wife to buy our first house together in Colfax, a little more out in the country which I like. Look me up if you ever make your way back to the right coast

Is your machine ballscrew driven or rack and pinion?

Great news! Best of luck with the move and transition. My wife and I bought two homes in Greensboro about 10 years ago, one in reedy Fork and the other in Glen Laurel (spl?) for rentals and a leg up when we are ready to "get right". Lots of opportunity in Kalifornia, but the state is regulating itself out of business. We have a five year old too, not the best enviroment for little ones, so right we will go!

Back to the topic (I'll slip off the soap box LOL), my machine is rack and pinion, 22.5PA X 22 pitch (if I remember right, gotta be close) and it uses a pnuematic tensioner, adjustable with a regulator. It's quiet and holds tolerance very well. I know ballscrew ismore accurate but the length was an issue. I have two 3 axis weld tables that use ballscrews on the Y (short) axis and they will walk right down to the thousandth. Of course they are only spinning 100rpm, so no whip.
