I m about to build an Avid Pro using a G3. This will obsolete my Heavy Mill with G2. Instead of trying to sell it, I thought I d convert it to plasma using my little plasma torch. Has anyone done a similar conversion?
I figured I d have to cover everything. I ll remove t track base to make space for the water tray. Stainless steel sounds like a good idea. It s a secondary project, so will be a while. I m excited to get started on the Avid, should arrive next week.
I particularly like your torch mount. Did you print that yourself, or is it an off-the-shelf item? What machine torch are you using? You seem to have yours working well with the HF start. Other than turning off the limit switches and adding the ferrites and shielded box for the controller, have you taken any other precautions, and have you had any other noise/EMI related problems?
