Latest video:
Building a CNC plasma table from scratch with a friend from Blackloop CNC. I'm doing the easy part of steel work, fabrication and welding. He's the specialist who builds CNC tables, routers and 3D printers too, on his spare time currently still as a hobby. This is the first episode in a series of upcoming episodes about this plasma table. I still need to add water pan with sheet holding ribs in it, install the electrical box somewhere, make some usable surface underneath the plasma table etc. And finally build an addition to my workshop only to separate the plasma table from the grinding dust in the workshop. I hope you enjoy and thanks for watching!

looks like it will be a good unit for you ,, i have been looking to get a table 4 ft x 8 ft the size of metal sheets i get ,, cost more then some cars to buy a plasma table ,, i will get one with out the water table .. i don't heat my garage all the time it would be a ice rink in the winter and where do you dump the nasty water and metal slag ? just rather deal with the slag ,,, keep up the great work you do ,, some time you could build a sand blasting cabnet , they are never big enough ,,put holes threw the sides so you can do pipes and sq tubes cover holes when not in use .. great show you do ..

Very solid build, well done But its way to slow for plasma cutting on thin sheets where you need to go as fast as 370in/min

You are saying that probably the aluminum extrusions are warped. But it could be your steel frame. The most important part is to have flat top surface of your steel frame. I don't see where you did that. You assumed your steel was flat and not warped.

The qweak is from the extreme hang in the leadscrew. It is very hard to keep that leadscrew straight which you have to you can't just keep it like that. That's why commercial machines usually go with a belt or some pinion drive system dealing with very long distances.

Nope, it was from the lead screw blocks - these were too tight. We loosened them and the squeeking sound went away.

Electronics Engineer here: I'd make absolutely sure, and I'd spend most of my time on, ensuring that the EMI produced by the plasma torch will not cause errors in signals going to motors or to the control electronics. Well shielded and twisted pair balanced signal cables and proper grounding schemes, well shielded enclosures for electronics and all that jazz... You don' want that thing to goof up because of the interference :D

Good work, cant beat a bit of cnc. it might be better to go with heavy lead ball screws if you can afford it or maybe belt drive as it will significantly improve your speed.

Really liking the build, but there's one significant issue that I can see. There is a huge amount of whipping on those drive screws - a thicker screw or racka dn pinion system would eliminate the squeaking. I reckon you'll be going through a huge amount of silicone lube and not eliminating the problem until you revisit that.

The face on the saw is pure awesome. I hope you will come up with some method of protecting the motors. I think I would have made the frame so the motors outside edge would be even with the surface of the cart (or I would more likely have realized that only AFTER I got everything put together). It may not be an issue, but I wouldn't want to get something hung on one of the motors because it sticks out. I expect this will become a HUGE asset in the shop once it's all built. I have thought about making a CNC table before. It could be used for routing wood, as a base for a 3D printer plasma cutting, and perhaps even light milling. Just swap out the head unit, and you have another machine. I am really excited to see how this progresses.

NoPe. Thats immanent with a trapezoidal spindle that length and dimension. Ist swinging up and distords speed. they should better use pulleys and toothed belts. More speed, less backlash, or use gear racks. Much cheaper and safer. they will experience step losses...

Did you try to run it while cutting? I built a table but never got the electrical noise sorted. It reset my Raspberry Pi completely so I switched to a PC but then the controllers were going nuts, stepping everywhere.. but with a more expensive plasma like an Esab or Hypertherm it's probably a lot easier.

It's remarkable how industrial automation has become an at home type of carefully follow the instructions reality. You're very fortunate you don't have to use encoders because most of them are a pain in the never ending calibration or Temposonic probes because although they offer absolute position data they are a pain in the bank account. Building a home use CNC in the 90's using a PLC 5, Parker hydraulic valves, INOVEC and Newness OEM cards with Windows NT, Visual Basic and Autocad was a lot of fun but would have been crazy expensive if not for used parts and plenty of good friends. Now the hardware bits and pieces are mass produced with Stepper Motors doing two jobs for you. I was hoping you would get yourself into a CNC. There's an incredible amount of development leading up to what's available now nearly completely sorted and packaged for peanuts. Take any part you're using and follow it's design back in time.... like Richard Hammond has been giving a shot at and you might gain some knowledge that's valuable for future projects. Have fun.
