The New Car

Tooling Up – Pt 3

Next up:  4′ X 4′ CNC plasma table for the multitude of brackets and other sheet parts needed for the car.  I bought the 8020HD Gantry Kit from Precision Plasma LLC plus the CNC electronics and stepper motors from  This requires building of the stand and cutting bed.

Here’s the steel (plus some tube which will be used for the car frame) and the start of the stand.  This thing is big!  The tube for the stand is mostly 3″ x 3″ but there are some other sizes and shapes required.  I’m MIG welding this stuff in the interest of getting it done.
