    Re: Fadal will not power on

    The 1st 2 things I would check is the PC type power supply (the fan seizes and they burn out) and pull all the control boards (the slot connectors can get corrosion and not be contacting).

    Re: 5x10 plasma table purchase

    If there is something new for that price, you will hate it.
    My table was 30 US and still required some minor engineering changes + 4k for the Hypertherm yet. A proper ventilation system will run you...

    Re: Fadal bad arc finish

    it could be the program.
    Maybe your other controls have built in "short segment smoothing".
  13. Re: Backlash from servo coupling? What should i do?

    Thrust bearings are a common replacement part on the Y, especially if you have the cool power ballscrews (which I bypassed to avoid this)

    Re: Finding REAL tradesmen and talant

    It is almost a dead trade.
    Most C of Q guys are button pushing monkeys or assemblers.
    Most shops are only selling spindle time at cut-rate prices and only hire minimum wagers, this is the beauty of...
  17. Re: HI and Low Piston Spindle Activated at the same time

    Last time that happened here it was because the oil got low in the air-over-oil reservoir.
    It is a fussy system and needs to be bleed out of the cylinders carefully if they ever get air in them. If...

    Re: Dynatorch XLS 5' x 10'

    You will need your vector files to be in DXF format then you can use the Dynatorch software to convert it into Gcode.

    Re: RS232 and set up issues

    NCFadal was absolutely bullet proof.
    Maybe the cable is too long for the power of your serial port on the PC
