I built this small CNC plasma table, which is located just outside my basement door under my deck. I keep the unit protected by a fire pit cover when not in use.

The stepper motors remain on the machine, and the cables can be connected in a couple of minutes. The air compressor, plasma cutter, and computer are inside the door. The electronics and software are from FlashcutCNC.

This arrangement eliminates the problem of plasma dust and smoke, and possible fire hazards. More details about the physical table can be found at the link below. Some of the components, particularly the linear rails, are more readily available in the U.K. than in the U.S.

Excellent Bill thankyou

I think I'd be too busy fishing, canoeing and drinking beer at sunset to do much machining

As I sit in my UK Rabbit Hutch my jealousy doesn't extend to just the plasma cutter.
