I'm starting this thread a little early, but I have decided to build my own cnc plasma table. I would like to out right by one, but I can't justify the expense. I've been doing some reading and I somewhat confident that I can wire my table. The wiring and electronics are my biggest concern.
So far I'm waiting on my plates for the gantry. I ordered this kit from No Sleep Studio.
I'm ordering my tubing tomorrow.
Electronics will be next week. I'm still trying to figure out what to order. I'm torn between two kits.
Keling INC has a Gecko Kit that is reasonably priced, but you have to wire it yourself. I will add the torch height control from CandCNC.
CandCNC has a complete plug and run kit that has excellent reviews, but It's not cheap! I'm trying to count my pennies.
From what I've read and from what I have figured... depending on which electronic/motor package I go with.. This build will cost between $2500.00 and $3,000.00 for a 4x8 table. My goal is $2,000.00 no more than $2,500.00!
