    Hi,
    I have taken an interest in your build and think the idea is great. I have an under utilized plasma cutter and thought this would be great for some light fabrication.
    Have you got it finished and working?

    How are the feed rates with acme screws? I thought the rate needed for Plasma would be too fast for them.
    Would rack & pinion would be more suited to a plasma cutter. What are your thoughts.

    So many questions..
    regards
    Dave

    First cut was finaly done yesterday , all works fine at the first cut , i'm pretty pround of that :)
    This Dragon plasma cutting table is not so fast as my ox cnc plasma cutting table because i use leadscrew instead gt3 belt but its main advantage is to be easily transportable and to be able to put the steel sheets in place on 3 sides
    Max speed : 1.2m /mn
