    panasonic plasma machine torch

    HI
    Have you seen this torch Panasonic P-80.
    P-80 PANASONIC plasma cutting straigh machine torch 25F | eBay
    I bought one of these and machined an adapter for my everlast PM-256.
    I am in the process of building my own plasma table too. Bought all the electronics from hubbard with mach 3. Its still in the box but I am getting close. Very nice videos and table you built.
    have fun

    Machine Torch

    Acourtjester that machine torch that was recommended (Panasonic P-80) does not have a European style connector which these machines use.

    P-80 adapter

    Hi
    You are correct but a adapter can be machined like the one I made for mine.
    It is just like the one I made for my tig torch.
    Works fine.

    Have fun

    Pendant

    crandolph I finally took a look at your videos very nice machine, my congratulations! My machine is similar, although not as nice a construction. Can you give me the details on how to add one of those wireless pendants? I have seen that before but I think it's slick to use a wireless game controller.

    It's really simple. You can get the plugin for Mach3 at ArtSoft USA - Plugins

    Use the Xbox360 controller one.

    Get an Xbox 360 controller for windows. Be sure to get the one that says for windows.
    Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows | Microsoft Hardware
    (The for windows means it comes with a wireless adapter that will make it work in windows.)
    Install the controller as a normal machine and make sure it is seen in windows.

    Install the plugin. Basically drop the plugin file into Mach3/plugins

    Always make sure your controller is on and working before you launch Mach3 or it will be disabled.

    Open Mach3 and goto Config/Config Plugins

    In there click on config for the 360 controller.

    Setup what you want each joystick or button to do.

    I'm getting it all dialed in now and I'm starting to think about THC. Pretty much the only thing I've found is the LCTHC from candcnc. I was wondering if anybody is using it or has other suggestions on one that won't cost more than my whole machine?
