Hello from Ontario Canada.

Long time CNC user in industry. Just getting started at home with my dyna myte 1007, trying to find my way around mach3 and the various hardware that has been changed in the machine.

Hi,  My name is Steve Harris and I live near Worcester in England. I am retired now and have been interested in CNC for some years.  I have a Denford Triac mill which I started rebuilding (electronics were U/S) a while ago. An acquaintance helped me with initial set up but by the time I got to the electronics stage I had lost touch with him so now I am stuck with a machine doing nothing.  My problem is that I am OK on the mechanical and electrical side of things but electronics to me are a mystery !!
I will probably be posting a fair few questions in my efforts to, at last, get this thing going.
The triac came from a local college, where my wife worked, and came in a job lot of machines and stuff.  The Denford miller cost me £5-60, and I also have the Orac lathe at the same price !!
Sorry to rant on but perhaps you can see my dilemma as I've spent a fair few pounds on hardware and would love to get this up and running.
Regards.  Steve Harris

Hello people, does the post I'm replying to really date back to 2007?, it's now 2020! I'm new in the CNC and ArtSoft blog game, have already clocked up quite a few problems to be resolved but do not know how to log a post on the subject so that it opens it up to everyone of you out there. Can someone give this newby a leg up please? Hope you're all well

Hi everyone- new to this forum.
I am still a newbie, but quickly learning. I built a 4x8 plasma table using a Hypertherm 45XD. I am currently using Mach 3.
I get pretty clean cuts, but the Proma THC is very fickle (sometimes it keeps the torch head at the proper height, and sometimes (like now) it is for some reason rising up to maybe 3/8" when I turn on THC. I do have a floating head with an offset switch, and using the CNC Machine torch from Hypertherm.
I am now considering upgrading to Mach 4 Hobby version and getting a better THC like the one made by Texas Instruments TMC3in1, supported by Warp9td (I am using their Smooth Stepper).

I need consistent cuts for small production runs now that I am set up. Anyone have feedback for me?
I do not have a fat budget to invest in $1000+ THC systems right now. Looking for a good solution for this phase of growth.

Or maybe just upgrading to Mach 4 will help solve my consistency issues?
