premier plasma cnc any good

Postby Brewmaster » Thu Jun 08, 2017 10:17 am

I spoke with this guy on the phone and also spoke with eagle plasma about him. I want a hobby table and this guy seems to be one of the few in my price range. My buddy was screwed over by a guy with a table that looks similar out of Vegas (former owner of protorch). I was assured by Jake at premier plasma the he was not associated with them. He had issues with the same guy.

His table looks nice and supposed to be releasing a new version with a flat top so you can load metal from anyway. I just want to make sure I am not wasting $5,000 of my hard earned money.

Anyone have one of these tables or delt with the company?

Can anyone recommend a different table in this price range? I wanted a 4x4 but for the right price I would buy a 4x8

Here is the website for the table I am looking at

Hello Brewmaster, I am in the market for a "hobby table" too and am considering premier plasma and eagle (2x2). What did your research turn up for you? Did you make a purchase? Thanks for any insight on a good, cost effective hobby cnc.

Hello Brewmaster/All. I ended up purchasing a Premier Plasma table and I am extremely happy with the product and service provided by Jake at Premier Plasma. I am fortunate enough to be located within miles from Premier and visited Jake at his shop. After a walk through and demo of some of his tables, I decided to go with Premier.

Jake built me a custom 3x4 table. He walked me through every aspect of the table and got me running perfectly. The table is great and I am making my first few projects with great results.

For me the decision was based on customer service and making sure that I got the support I needed. Jake invested a lot of time into both the product and my learning to deliver an exceptional outcome.

I highly recommend giving Jake a call at Premier if you interested in a cnc table (with water pan to boot)!

PS. - on a side note, I spent quite a bit of time on the phone with Al from Eagle Plasma. Al is a great guy and he helped me considerably along my journey. I have no doubt that Al would provide great customer service for his tables and would definitely not hesitate to work with him.

Thanks to all on this forum for the insight and inspiration to get me started!

Hey Brewmaster,
Not sure what you ended up with, but I also went with a Prem Plasma table. VERY happy with the quality and especially the one on one help. I have texted and facebooked as late as 11 pm with these guys, helped me the whole way. If I had any complaints - the shipping was a little weak, took a long time and arrived with a damaged water pan (that i was able to straighten out). The instructions were weak, but I am a 30 year auto tech and was able to piece things together. But all works better than expected. If you havent purchased, make sure you ask for the discount code USA2017 - saved me a few hundred bucks. Dont skimp on the torch, Hypertherm is what they suggested and it works well

Purchased the 4x4 flat top table. Jake has been awesome at his customer service and support. Lead time was 2 weaks which was alright.

Table went together very simply. Took me roughly 8 hours to assemble and I was up and running. I also built my own water pan from a sheet of 14 gauge. Cost me $120 for a 5x10 sheet another hour to cut and weld sides up. Saved $180 and I have a 4x5 drop of 14ga.

Everything ran great for 2 weeks. My computer is hooked up to the internet and decided to update windows 7 one day and made mach 3 crash every time I tried to bring it up. Jake helped me for a day to figure it out when it wasn't even on his end of it.

Got everything back up and running. Still learning a lot along the way.

I'm glad I spent my money on the "little guy". Definitely not top of the line but a very able table. I'll send some pics when I get some time.

I am also considering a 4x4 flat top and the experiences you gentlemen have had may have just sold me on it. How difficult has the software been to learn?

Lots of YouTube videos and trial and error. I would sit down at night and just practice drawing anything for experience. By 2 weeks things were going smoothly. Like anything experience is whatcha need to succeed... Good luck

I've had my 4x8 premier plasma table a little over a month and love it. Cuts perfect, easy set up, easy to learn.
