How to Make Your own Plasma Cutter....
Works great!With a higher pressure and a HV capacitor (1,5 nF) in the output of flyback finally my the plasma cutter is working perfectly. I will not publish a picture of my creature because it's only a lot of wires on the floor. Soon as assemble it properly i will post some photos.Thank you Plasanator!Plasma cutter video!
Hi Joe Eichholz,Yes the work clamp is positive and the electrode is negative.I will try with 70 psi of pressure i was using 40 psi or less. I have small air compressor!I builded with 120V AC inlet and the voltage doubler. I measured +/- 320V DC.I'm using 6Ω resistor and 10.000uf capacitors.I need high power hv to start the plasma? The flyback system have only 24W.Thanks for helping. I will post the results soon.
My plasma cutter (almost) works! Unfortunately the plasma do not start when i press the button. My arc starter is made of a TV FLYBACK with the positive HV wire is connected in external tip of the torch and the negative HV connected with the (-) high current in the interior of the torch.I have to scratch the torch several times to iniciate the plasma and finally cut something.Please any help or suggestion will be welcome!I WILL NEVER GIVE UP UNTIL MY PLASMA CUTTER BE WORKING 100%.Tks All!
