New Here - From CT

Howdy, my name is Derek, 27, from Middlefield, CT. I just got my XR two days ago so I’m super excited to learn how it works, and to hear everyones input. I’ve never operated a plasma CNC before so this was a pretty substantial commitment for me, but I’m trying to open a fabrication shop so I decided to jump in with both feet. I currently work for Moroso Performance where I’ve been a CNC turret punch programmer and operator for the past 6 years, as well as cnc press-brakes. I know absolutely NOTHING about plasma, so if anyone local wants to come mess around with an XR you’re more than welcome to come show me a few things and drink some beers. I’m looking forward to this new venture, and talking to all of you.


Welcome to the forum. I see you’ve also “met” the other CT folks on the other thread.

An XR is a serious entry machine :slightly_smiling_face:


hey @derekmatcheski welcome to the community. I have a Pro. delivered in first week of may. Great machine. I wish I had the room for an XR.
