This is the prototype for a smaller economical CNC plasma cutter that has more forgiving power and air requirements. This unit will be well suited for the hobbyist or someone with limited space and power.
I will be using a middle of the road plasma cutter, an Everlast PowerPlasma 50s, which is available for under $900.
This is the first pass at this plasma build, and while I was happy with most of the features I built into the machine, I did run into some problems while testing.
This means I will have to revisit my Y carriage plate design and how I attach them to the gantry.
To Be Continued .....
Please note that these are prototype notes for a detailed book that I will be publishing. This document will not contain the detail that will be available in the book once published.
