I’m ordering my XR tomorrow or Friday when the bank is done with all their stuff. My main question is, is the water pan on the XR stainless like the pro? Is it just painted? I was going to slot it better for water passage then tig weld everything up. I have noticed that the XR has a painted pan and I might see if it’s possible to get it raw when I order if it is stainless.
I am also trying to go ahead and order bungs for each section to weld in for easier drainage so knowing what material would be helpful on that front. The only info I found on the XR page was that it has a 3.4" water table depth.
Has anyone done any water aerator on these to mitigate the gas from lots of aluminum cutting? I’ve worked in shops with no aerator and had lots of loud pops and booms from pierces. I’m pretty sure the building that I’m in would not appreciate that noise, so if I can stop in somehow, whether it’s just pumping water from one end of the table through a drain and pumping it back to the other or some other set up, it would be helpful.
