Well I got the star cut plasma cutter hooked up today and tried it . Im using the standoff for the torch but not sure if its the right one or not as it holds tip away from workpiece approx .25" not sure if this is normal or not you have to understand this was all bought at an auction so really had no idea if this thing worked or not. Ok the machine will cut but on lower amps only i guessing around 30 amps anything above that the arc goes on and off . im just cutting some .125" material to try it out . i set air at reccomend flowing pressure of 70 psi and air is very clean so i know that is not the problem . also seems to go through the tips very quickly so might be a torch promlem i dont know . also there are two parts to the torch tips the inner copper piece and the outside piece that has a .055 hole in it . when tighening the outer piece sometimes its like im tightening against a spring sometimes it just bottoms out . I have polarity set right this runs off and external welding powersource and im giving it 375 amps of dc power . machine is a powcon starcut . when trying to cut let say at 40 amps you have to cut really fast or the arc goes on and off .but on 30amps it stays steady .machine goes to 80 amps . pls anyone someone must know someone with one of these type of machines .
No announcement yet.
