    The build was slowed down with my holidays, a new Kitchen and bathroom install and also a drill bit getting stuck in my finger and taking out the nerve which had to be operated on. 4 weeks off work wasnt bad though... Had a tidy up and created a few files to drill the spoil board to do wood engraving.

    Also had to buy 3 new driver boxes as there was a slight wiring mishap but i have also been able to repair the 3 and use them as spares.

    The spoil board is 28mm MDF cut in half and put on top off itself so the picture show it at 4ft x 4ft. The holes were plugged with 6mm threaded inserts which will be used to hold down the material to be cut. The whole lot will be fixed to the orange metal as seen in photo so as to be able to be leveled up as needed.
    Once i get the Hypertherm up and running, the board will be removed to expose the water table (yet to be built). The material for the water table is underneath the MDF ready for welding.

    There is still a few teething problems which i will update or change as they rear their heads. But i will be putting a few photos on to get some feed back for the connection of the Hypertherm to my THC and also to wire the VFD up to be remote controlled from Mach 3.
    Hopefully gets some help from the forum....
    Many thanks
    Tommy

    Machine is looking good! Don't try to tighten whatever you're clamping down too tight, the inserts pull out of the MDF really easily or distort the bed round them so it's no longer flat!!

    Here is a picture of the real first job...

    njhussey.....same thoughts as you but upto now the bolt holes held the piece no problems but that might be because its a new piece of mdf.
    Not sure after a lot of spilt coffee etc....

    Light not too good but its visible.
