Thanks everyone that posted! I'm sure I will have more questions in the future.



:D I am glad you got it straightened out.

Don't leave just yet...you made a comment about having problems with the burn plates warping and cracking. Those plates should last a decade, or two...tell us what feed rate and air settings you are using, and how the other controls are set.

Yes those burn plates should last awhile. agree with Rob for sure.

the ones I have I got USED and have put 7 years on them already without any issues.

Glad you got your air issues fixed out.
