Buying round grill grates?

Plasma Cutter
funracingdad asked:


I have a large tank. It is heavy plate tank from an 80 gallon air compressor. I’m wanting to convert it into a large upright gas smoker. I am wanting to set it up so I can install wire grates every three inches for items such as pork chops and ribs then remove grates for larger items. I need to know of a supplier that sells round grill grates by diameter. Replacement Weber grill grates is all I’ve found so far doing google searches. I’m looking for a company that sells a selection of sizes. I’ve just purchased the tank and havn’t touched it with the plasma cutter yet to know the inside diameter of the tank.
Thanks for your help!

Having single phase converted to three phase electric – Which is the best way to achieve this?

Antony G asked:


I rent a small workshop that has a single phase electric supply, but I want to use a vacuum pump which needs a three phase supply. I’m thinking that there are two options available. Either I get the workshop wired up by an electrian or I buy a single phase to three phase converter. The trouble is I know absolutely nothing about these converters. Is it that simple just to buy a converter and that’s it? I notice that these converters have am HP rating. e.g 5HP or 25HP. What does this mean? I’m just going to be running one piece of equipment which is a vaccum pump for my cnc router vacuum table. Would I need to buy a converter with a high HP rating. How can I work out which converter would be suitable?

I am looking for free (or cheap) CAD files (DXF or DWG format) that can be used with a cnc router. In particular I would like scroll work designs for decorating furniture.

CNC router cutting MDF?

cnc router
Antony G asked:


I need to find a way of cutting a sheet of MDF which the dimensions 2500mm x 1250mm x 30mm, into strips 12mm wide.

The cut surfaces must be totally free from tool marks and the strips of MDF must be cut completely straight with 90 degree edges. I’ve obviously considered using a cicular saw but that would leave some saw marks on the material (importantly, it would not be possible to sand the MDF after cutting).

Is it possible to do this with a cnc router/engraving machine? Obviously I would lose a fair amount of material due to the cutting width of the router bit, but as the MDF is quite cheap I don’t mind this.
