Fabrication tool

http://www.torchmate.com/pantograph.htm

For those of you who fabricate your own parts. This used to be made by this company but they have gone on to make digitally controlled cutting tables..Still this kind of machine is in use in many shops for cutting precision parts...Uses your existing torch or plasma cutter to cut parts with..They made the plans available for the hobby guys and small shops

Much better than freehand and grinders

Flame Cutter


Attached is a picture of a flame pattern cutter I built years ago and was published in "The Home Shop Machinist" It will trace a wooden pattern manually and cut steel plate. I have cut brake brackets, motor mounts, axle brackets ect on it. I can supply you with plans for free!

Have fun
Tom

Flame Cutter Plans


I'm not sure this will come out in a usable form.
If not email me with a private message with your email address and I will send it to you that way.
Have fun
