Default No more excuses from the "I can't doo C.N.C." crowd...

Of all the electric eye machines, these were about the best, and IIRC parts
may still be available.

No excuses...

Looks like an optical tracer gantry setup with oxy-fuel torches

No excuses.

Yup, and these will run a plasma as well.

For those that can't herd electrons on a screen very well.....

Someone donated a Koike Sanso to the church about 5 years ago. It took some TLC to get it working but it cuts pretty well for such an old machine.

Looks like an identical copy, I wonder if the electronics is the same (note the linde one says "Westinghouse Canada" on it)

Some years back I saw a NOS Koike O/A cutting torch for about $50. Should have bought it.

For those not familiar with electric eye cutting tables, here are a few older photos I had on hand. At the time these were taken, plasma arc was somewhat of a rarity, and oxy-fuel was generally used on ferrous material. The pictures are pretty much self-explanatory.
