one other thing i happen to come across was a bolted frame vs welded in vibration dampening. i seen something about bolted frames having better qualities in that respect? i have no idea if it's true or not but i will see sooner or later.

ideally i would like to see if i can end up with a few different head heads to attach to this table for different processes. so this build will end up routing and possibly light gantry milling and then onto plasma just because the first two are low investment compared to a plasma unit.

i think once i get the table top frame work solid the gantry would do well since it's pretty solid despite being aluminum. my gantry is probably close to 200 lbs and i have the motors to handle that sort of work as well.

if light milling works well i am no longer limited to pierce thickness and can do much thicker work. i would like to do a zoned vacuum table in aluminum and have a removable water table for the plasma end when i get to it.

this is not a light weight build at all i should be well over 2,000 lbs minus the water table part of it when i get done.

if nothing else this whole thing should be entertaining at least :)

Did someone mention China! I'm there right now but I think a flat pack plasma might be a bit beyond my carry on luggage limit!

I'm in Shanghai for an automotive trade show. Spent the last 2 days walking and still have not got around all of the 6000 exhibitors.

that's OK. like i said i have multiple plans for different uses so i would never find a pre made kit to equal the train wreck of ideas floating about in my head :) so your off the hook on smuggling anything out of the country :) besides i doubt they have WiFi in the camps so the community here would miss you :)

Plus they fingerprinted and photographed every foreigner as we entered the country. Pretty amazing place.
