And then the tube broke

I was playing around cutting something and it didn’t get through.
So I decided to make a testpiece and cut with various power %.

Suddenly a loud sound coming from the tube area.
Not sure what happened… But the tube is leaking power :wink:

However time to order a new tube I guess. (Which I was planning anyway, it just sped up things)

Check the sparks: (unfortunately I can’t post a video)

I know you know this but make sure you unplug the machine before you change that tube… we need you around so you can share links with the group… :wink:

I like the color of your machine too :rofl:

Here is ours
