    Default CNC plasma table construction plans

    Hi

    CNC Plasma cutter table plans for sale (over 50 sets of plans sold since April)
    The plans cover a complete construction of a CNC table that can be used for plasma, routing, and light milling of aluminum parts. Basic plans are for a 4’ X 4’ cutting area but can be easily changed to a larger or smaller table. Drawings and .tap files for cutting parts the rest are standard steel angle and square tubing. Complete parts list with vender for bearings, electronics, and drive components. Including wiring diagrams for motor circuits and computer connections, construction of floating head torch mount and water table. The cost for building this table is about $1300. plus your plasma unit. Included are informational videos showing how to set up and use SheetCam for parts placement and cutting order.
    Instructions are in the form or .PDF files and are on CDs with constructions pictures.
    The plans are $20. shipping is $4.00 in the US and $10. non-US postage.
    Payment can be made to PayPal account name courtjester22@cox.net

    If you are interested I also sell a kit that has the parts for the slider, motor mounts and connecting parts cut from ¼” steel for the table. Cost is $150. including the plans plus shipping of $13.50. Or $135 after you buy the plans plus $13.50 shipping.

    What would you estimate the total build cost to be on a 4x4 dry table, once completed and ready to work ? (less the plasma cutter)

    Could I use my HF PP60 or would the HF cause too many problems ?

    I would say $1300. with new materials, if you have some material you can use that will bring it down. I bought a refurb PC to run mine if you have one you can use thats more you can save. On my third table I bought the motors, drivers, and power supplies from china and saved another $100.
    Go for it you won't look back.

    You can use Mach 3 and sheetcam free for cutting small parts up to 150 lines of code. The license cost about $150 to $175 each. I use my everlast PM256 for a short time on my first table.
    I used it to cut the parts for the second table development until I got a straight plasma unit. I would check with Everlast about your Power Plasma 60.

    I ordered the plans from Tom and for the $20 you get that just in cd's. Lots of pictures and enough drawings to get'er done. Unless you have lots of time I would suggest getting the pre-cut parts. Took me several days to figure out a wood pattern to cut some of the parts. The rest were rough cut and then finished in a mill.....aka a bit slower then full plasma cut parts. There are a few changes I would make if I did it again but they are just nit picky things like a 1/4" more here or a slight shift of part there.

    Ordered the plans mid Dec., base is done, x and y mounted, and electronics test wired and running on my desk. Surplus center is slow so today I will work on the Y drive and maybe the z lead screw.

    Glad to hear you are making a few bucks here and there to help out with the hobbies. I work with a guy who developed a fairly extensive set of build/fab plans for some personal tracked vehicles that he sells on ebay. He makes out pretty well with them.
