Up popped a menu asking first for the O.D. and he simply keyed in "24.00"
then was the hole size, "1.00", then number of holes "8".
The B.C. he keyed in "22.00"

It asked "center hole" and he set "00.00" or "no".

Push button and it was burned out complete.

Need another ?

Move torch to another area of the plate and hit "0,0"
and there's the second one.

The whole process was just as I typed it, maybe 10 minutes including
putting the plate on the table, and grinding off some minimal slag.

I'm just not sure which to buy... for now even if only straight line type could be better till I could afford something much better but I still want one with the x,y, and z-axis
so being undecided is the only thing holding me from the buy it now... and having to et a new plasma machine with the right requirements.

floor space? just may not be that easy, I assume you need at least 2 inches of clearance for burn through it maybe one thing if you have to cut one large part but if you need a lot of smaller parts you just may need to make a special table just to keep it above the ground surface, i don't see a plywood table working very well .......

I was looking at a similar concept from Langmuir Systems for about $1500. It only cuts 2'×2'. Makes me nervous buying a large table when these little ones are getting so cheap.

The sale is only for the PNC-12 EXTREME and it is 12,500 and some change for it..... I've done been on the phone with them... so it's out of the question.
