4 7amp Gecko 201A drives
for the controller. I made the case by laying a flat sheet of aluminum on my first cnc table and used the router with a 1/8" solid carbide drill mill. It cut all of the holes, after that I broke it on the bender and this is what came out.

Back view of the controller.

Another view.

This is a view of the Gecko drives in the case mounted atop

an aluminum heat sink. Breakout board from Camtronics

This is the relay board that I mounted in the control box to turn the plasma torch on and off by way of the parallel port. The software takes care of this. I am using SuperCam.

View of the controller from the side.

Another view of the controller. Here you can see the two transformers and capacitor.

Side view of the table. Upper frame is 3 x 4 x 3/16 tube, lower is 2 x 2 x 1/4 tube.

2 inch aluminum brackets attached to the frame to support the rails.

My homemade CNC-PC station. I will still be using this PC for the CNC #2 table.
