Hello all although not new to the sign world and lots of years with vinyl plotters, this is whole new can of worms. I have been using CrossFire Pro. for about a month learning about speed, metal thickness and what the Razor Cut 45 amp plasma cutter will get done. I got into this as a way to produce my brake systems for early Rolls Royce’s. So I will look for answers on this forum to get through some of the glitches I have experienced. Cheers from Atlanta!
Welcome to the zoo!
This is a good place to come for help with that. We’ve all got different vintages so we’ll be able to take measurements and such…
Welcome to this band of misfits! Here you will find answers to all of your questions as you venture down this rabbit hole!
@Jackshack , I should have warned you that there is one misfit who races around on a tropical island in an Aston Martin. Other than that, most of the rest of us are, more or less, ‘normal’.
Do you build cars or just drive them. I actually own a fabrication shop in Snellville GA. Owned one vintage Rolls and two vintage Bentley’s. Out of necessity I had to convert them to disc brakes an GM motets. Taking 5days to make caliper mounts with a cutting torch and a grinder I decided to get one of these. Now it takes about 14 seconds. I did well up to a week ago my X axes is groaning and hangs up when moving from a stop to another location when moving fast? Any ideas?
All right another screwball!
Ok, I have to fess up. The only automotive thing ‘I’ do is occasionally bring my 15 year old F150 in for an oil change.
However, there are a bunch of dudes who DO do cars, so, never fear, there is some useful experience you’ll be able to count on.
X axis grinding on a CF Pro has probably occurred once or twice. I don’t have a pro, but there is a category specifically for that platform. Use the search tool (magnifying glass in upper right), in that category, and look for “X grinding”, I’ll bet you’ll get something. If not, start a thread over there - you’ll get help.
