  • CNC Plasma Table

    I recently made some improvements to my plasma water table. When I first built the plasma table the significance of a water table eluded me. So as a patch I hung a water table under the slats... that kinda worked ok but gave off lots of smoke and dust. I finally found my round tuit and modified the water table so the slats were inside then shorted the hangers to raise the water table up the original level of the old slats. You can notice in the video the old hangers on the back tube.

    A video of the plasma in action.

    Have you got soap in your water? Just wondering what all the bubbles were from.

      LOL, no soap but sodium nitrite to stop rust and physan20 to keep the critters from growing.

        Come on John post some better pictures of how you built your rails and how the gantry is built. I looked at all the pictures on photobucket of your table but they are not very conclusive as to how you built some of the good parts.

          What parts are you interested in seeing? I can take some more photos.

          The photo bucket photos cover the belt attachment and adjustment, the limit switches, the drive for the X and Y axes as well as the Z details.

          If I get some time today I'll try and upload some recent photos to my web site of the water table modifications.

            It would be great to see some photos of how you built the gantry ends and the Z axis.

              There are 8 photos of the gantry ends on photobucket that I took during the construction of the plasma table.

              I've added a few recent photos to my web site.

              Edit: wrong link, this is the right one.
