Torch Shield for Xfire Tools

15 Like

I was getting some water splash onto my torch handle, right on the trigger, which is not water proof or Water resistant. I decided to cut this out of alum (had some laying around) to mitigate this issue (since water and elect switch = headache sooner than later) Simple cut, alum settings of 120/min at 20 amps with a 0.1 pierce delay worked great. Holes are a little messy but can be cleaned up with a drill bit or dropping the amps down some more (maybe 15?). 30* bends on each side (or as you see fit) with a bench bender and the attachment tab was done with hand held bend pliers. I put a little bit of angle on it too so that if I do get water droplets inside it will act as a gutter. Length is 6.5 inch long.

    when I loaded the dfx all I got was a rectangle and two circles that were not inside it.

    unfortunately the design is created with sheetmetal workspace, so the sketch that I was able to export was of the hole location and the rectangle...thought the DXF would have more than just the any rate, the holes are 1.5" apart, do a rectangle that contains those and then use sheetmetal workbench to create the sides to your dimension that best fits your torch. Until we can share F360 files...

    Use the Unfold command in the sheetmetal workspace - then create a sketch, project the unfolded pattern to the sketch and right click the sketch on the tree to "save as DXF" There is a NYCNC video #FF94 that shows how to do it. If you share the F360 file with me I can help too.
