    Hello everyone I'm Bobby Wade, I have been in the industry for just over 13 years everything from CNC Mill and lathe to press brake, welding CAD/CAM and design, I started teaching at the local Community College three years ago and we have at the moment 3 4X4 tables, all use hypertherm 45s, thanks for adding me to the group, and I look forward to learning more and more about the system.

    Hello,
    My name is Kevin. Getting ready to outfit my backyard shop with either a TM3 or X. Still deciding. Came here from Pirate4x4 because TM said this was the new place for all the cool kids.

    Personally I would look at a Classic or an X. Better mechanics...

    Oh and yes... Cool kids for sure.

    Hit up the TM university. http://torchmate.com/university Hit up the CHAT feature on the website. 80% CAD and 20% Machine and when you want to get dangerous... come to Reno to the training. Also leading a training at Iowa St (Ames IA) in July and getting one together in West Virginia in August. Get a hold of me if you need more information.
