Machinist Notes

We recommend cutting this design on 12 gauge steel (~.10" thick) to ensure the pieces connect together.  In our testing, we achieved the best cut wth 65A,130 volts and a speed of around 35 to 40 in/min. You can modify the design with CAD software to allow cutting on any number of gauge material.  Review the tables below for more detailed specifications.
