Default New Plasma Cam CNC Plasma Cutter

Ordered this last week, got it in and set up. Been playing with it between paying jobs. I have the basics figured out and it is up and running. So far so good.

Awesome! You figured out how much you're gonna charge yet? I got a couple things that need plasma-tabling.

I bought it primarily to cut blanks for leaves, sleigh bells and flowers. I figure as I have time to experiment with it I'll venture into signs, weather vanes and custom parts.
The time it will save me just on the leaves and such will make it worth the investment.
Once I get comfortable with it I will start quoting outside work but I'm still in the ruining perfectly good metal stage right now.

If you get tired of ruining metal and have questions we can help.
You have the DCH2, but if you had to struggle with the older version, it was a hell of a learning curve. This is a great machine.
Enjoy it and have fun.

John, if you don't mind, what swayed your opinion to spend your money on the plasma cam over any of the others available?
