    Re: MyCenter 1 Refurb or Retrofit?

    If you can re-use your servo motors and drives, Delta Tau makes a good cnc control that's not hobby grade. Really a good control. Steep learning curve, but worth it.

    Re: Cnc plasma ( water cooled or air cooled )

    My plasma torches were always air cooled. Water cooled sounds like a good idea, maybe complicated tho. The grill under the sheet is expendable, expect to replace the slats occasionally.
