    My new 42's came in on the truck to work today....They just barely fit in the back of my little truck for the ride home. They're actually stacked up about 6 feet to my left as I type this. Wasn't gonna leave them in the back of my truck parked on the street....4 42's take up alot of space in a small appt. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    Second cool toy-
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2563974063&category=45030&rd=1
    Been workin on gramps for the last year or so to buy one. He's been wanting one for a long time anyways...So I finally convinced him to get that one...I can FINALLY start actually producing a few more of the 14b covers I make. Well, thats after I do all the stuff for Gramps that I had to agree to do, for him to agree to buy that thing...

    Pics of the 42's on Friday. Thier gonna get grooved beforew I even bolt them on the truck. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The 900 is the discountinued older model equivelant to the 1000. Pretty much the same thing for the most part. I think the max reccomened capacity for the 900 is 7/8" with 1 1/8" severance capacity. Got this one for $1595 used. Comes with 6 months warranty left on the power supply, 25' torch, a bunch of exta tips/electrodes and the owners manual of course. Not a bad deal I think. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    As far as I'm concerned Hypertherms are the only way to go. Every shop I've worked in has had either the Powermax 600 or 900. Great machines. And yes HYpertherm makes smaller stuff...You'd probably do well with the Powermax 380. I think that one will run off 110/220. Can't remember. The 900 runs on either 220 or 440. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    have to look into it, thx for the tip. Really, this thing would prolly be used to cut basic sheetmetal as often as it did "thicker" stuff like .120 or .250... doesnt seem like it'd take much of a PC to do that kinda metal... /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
