Try to keep busy. The time will go faster. :(
Sorry to hear this but when it does arrive, it'll be all that much more fun setting it up.

Well good thing is I wont have to set up anything.Usually you just need to add the legs to the table if its shipped and everything else is ready to go.Since its 6.5 hours away im just gonna go pick it up and trailer it home.You get a free class that way too showing you the software basics and such.

I've got a 5'x10' table built by Fastcut using Dynatorch electronics. Hypertherm 45 and just got a Hypertherm 1650 that will go on when I start cutting again. Everything has been mothballed for the last 6 months while I move and build a new shop which is nearing completion.

Alleykat, the one suggestion I would make is while you're awaiting the new table do some research and find out what you will use for design software and start practicing and even designing your first projects. IDK what software your table comes with but it's usually just the machine control and not anything for CAD or artsy stuff. Learning to run the table will be quick and easy compared to design work. Good luck with it and have fun!

Taken from their site

-Artcam for drawing
-Sheetcam for toolpaths
-Mach3 for controller software

Right now the parts I already get cut out by a waterjet place my friend did the CAD work for me.What I do is give him a rough drawing with my measurements and he does the rest.I told him this new machine will come with artcam and he laughed saying its super easy to use.Guess if all else fails i'll let him teach me here and there.He used to do CAD work for a living until he switched careers.Im lucky to have him on my side thats for sure.
