I just got this answer back from cnczone-

Maybe yours is fancier then mine, mine gets set to zero and I set the height I want the tip at when cutting and it just holds that height, doesn't adjust to the metal.

I hadn't been clear, myself, about lifting the torch between cuts and how it worked with THC (torch height control) during cuts. I'm closer now to seeing the bigger picture... I think you nay be able to retro fit for torch lift, maybe... Sometimes it is called touch-and-go or something like that.

Oh, yes, mine does that, touch and go and lifts between cuts, but I was talking about dragging while it is cutting. The material does move, especially sheetmetal.

Here is a picture of the goodies that have arrived so far.



Brackets for geared reduction/motor mounts, ganty brackets for x,y and z, geared pulleys, concentric and eccentric bushings, v-bearings (surprisingly pricey), springs, z axis, touch-and-go brackets, belts ...

That little pile on the horse blanket is almost $1000. Slightly less than half of the cost is hardware. I'm held up for the time being while the not-so-helpful distributor for the V-Rail beam and track learns how to return phone calls or answer email. It's been a week of unanswered messages. The guy has my VISA number and perhaps he's making his own "theme" purchases with it... All I want to do is order out of Seattle- they are happy to answer the phone, emails and take my hard earned money!

I've ordered up the Mach 3 and Sheetcam software, too. It doesn't run in Linux but everyone who uses the apps seems to be happy with what they get out the two apps. Besides, as it turns out EMC2 (the popular Linux based CNC system) doesn't talk nicely with the Dragoncut-Bladerunner motor hardware/electronics package I've purchased. So, the software system is all settled now!

I've pested the fellow who supplied the brackets and all of the geared reduction design and he's been great answering all of my questions with patience.

I still don't see how the hardware will function for the Z torch touch-and-go, so I'm really excited to dig into everything.

I looks like you can get height control for your system if you want it, too.

Hello Jim. Thank you for asking. Things have been busy Work, mostly. We are into a new semester at school so I've been busy with many new students and what new classes bring to planning and ... what was I saying?

I've been following your work and on the CJ and really enjoy every post. Your back must be coming along I hope that is the case. Otherwise, let me know and I'll buy some stock in the Tylenol company 'cause you must be using some of the stuff!

The weather here has actually been very warm. Barely any snow at our elevation. The grass is green and the front yard is clear of the white stuff. Our Italian exchange student living with us told us today that Rome has had snow- that explains where our snow went to. They can have the stuff!

Hi Eric. Not cruising in it yet. Just dreaming. Every now and then I see a nice rig and re-think my priorities... Naw, the priorities are in line, but the line is just too long!

Hi Dave. You know it!

I picked up the last of the speciality V-Groove metal stock today from the UPS drop-point just south of the US border. I had been worried that it may not make it here. PBC-Linear had announced that they are discontinuing this product. I'm glad I got the order in when I did. It will make for a nice smooth running gantry.

Now I need to figure out how large to make the table. I bought gear rack and rail stock to build a table as big as 5x10... Like Jim has said though, I'm short on space so maybe 4x8 is more reasonable. Dunno yet.

I've assigned my plasma table to my intermediate and seniors as one of the Design projects for term 3. I did the same for my garage so I'm hopeful to get the design done in a month or so. No rush.

Nice job on your wiring so far. I had a big pile of left-overs after transplanting the LT1 into my YJ. more came out than remained. Your job is much tidier than mine was though. I never cleaned/degreased my harness, I just pruned it. I'll try to do as tidy a job as you on my 302. Well, now that I've said that let's just wait and see how mine really does turn out!

On the logging roads and snowmobile trails outside of Big Bay. It was a blast.

Talked to my mom yesterday (they live 7 miles west of Nelson on the north shore) and she said it was raining. TO be honest even here the weather has been quite mild all winter we only had one cold snap and it was only around -30C for a couple of days and that was in December. Normally now would be the worst.
