Now if I click the jog mode, the keys on my keyboard will work fine to take it anywhere on the table, but you have to hit reset to stop the travel one way to change direction of travel.

Sounds like you may have very slow acceleration and thus it takes a long time to stop after you have started jogging.

Wondering if my machine could be putting off too much interference, which is ruining drivers.   Need to get driver farther away prom machine.    Buy more expensive driver or a different plasma machine.... any other ways to stop interference any one knows of? Thanks

How far away is difficult to determine as the location needs to be far enough away such that the intensity of field is no longer a factor.
You can "sniff" to get a "flavor" of the intensity at different distances. Best to have everything shielded properly to begin with.
If noise is  even your problem to begin with.

Was informed my table was not properly grounded. 8 foot ground rod wont happen when I live on a 2+ foot slab of rock. :o Just a building ground will have to suffice but the 9  supports are buried about 30 inches deep.
