    Need help buying plasma torch for AvidCNC table

    Hi There!

    I have an Avid 5x10 dual Z-axis table (spindle and plasma).

    I've got the spindle setup working and am currently building a vacuum table for routing. It won't be long and I will start in on the plasma portion of it.

    I purchased the plasma kit from Avid and incorrectly assumed it included the plasma torch (not the whole plasma cutter, but just the long cylindrical torch head - I think Hypertherm calls it a "machine torch").

    I have been planning on buying a PrimeWeld Cut60 plasma cutter and thought that the idea was to just connect the Hypertherm machine torch head to the Cut60 cutter.

    I've emailed Avid back and forth. I ask about the torch and customer support is trying to sell me the entire Hypertherm plasma cutter (obviously, either I or they are misunderstanding).

    The PrimeWeld Cut 60 includes a Euro Central Connection for the torch. What reasonably priced torch could I buy that would work with the Avid plasma torch mount and kit?

    I found this on eBay. Is this an option? Is there something better?

    Thanks!

    Why get a Hypertherm generator and a different torch? No reason to mix and match. Just get the Hypertherm setup. That is what I did and it works great.
