A: Yes, it will work with magnetic breakaways. The side loading of the torch during scribing operations is very minimal.
Q: Will this work with a Powermax 45?
A: It will not work with the Powermax 45 but will work with the 45XP.
Q: Will this work on my older Hypertherm 600, 1250, etc.?
A: It will depend on what torch your using. The best way to determine if it will fit is look at the part# of your plasma electrode. If your torch uses electrode #220842 the EasyScriber will fit your torch.
Q: Will this work with my digital torch height control?
A: Digital height control is dependent on arc voltage to function. Since there is no arc when scribing DHC is not used and you simply set a working height in your control software.
Q: What is the best speed to use when scribing?
A: 100ipm works well on harder materials like stainless and powdercoated surfaces but you can operate it well over 200ipm on softer materials like aluminum and painted materials.
Q: Can I apply more downforce for a deeper scribe?
A: The more you compress the tip during scribing the more downforce is applied, setting a lower working height will accomplish this. Spring pressure can also be adjusted by turning in the setscrew at the top of the EasyScriber body.
