I just can’t seem to make this work. I have pretty much tried everything. Going to try putting the hand torch on the machine tomorrow.
Today I reversed the y-axis lead screw because there are several scratches on the lead screw that I haven’t noticed until now (contacted Langmuir and awaiting a response).
I have tried everything I can think of, with the help of many members.
Today I made a cut and the machine cut out two small cuts and then stopped. It kept moving but no arc. My previous (2 minutes earlier) it cut the entire project - except for a small cutout on a letter A. This is just garbage.
I should be able to plug and play for the most part. I have struggled with this since day one.
If it were just cut quality I would chalk it up to the welder and consumables. Which is another issue in itself.
I can’t imagine that because I have an Everlast that is the reason for all of this. I have talked to others that aren’t experiencing any of these issues.
Yesterday I cut the same exact file and there were no off cuts on it. Other than it didn’t cut a piece of the letter A. How does one file present so many issues with mechanical cutting?
Thank you to so many folks on here, especially Bill P, who have tirelessly helped me over the phone and through email trying to sort this out.
I’m frustrated and at my wits end. I have wasted so much metal with this. I’m really not sure what to do at this point.
This was suppose to be exciting and fun and now I just feel like the joy has been sucked out of me.
Sorry for the rant.
