    Hey where do you buy your plasma? lol I bought a cutter a couple weeks ago, it's great. It will get into places my sawzall wouldn't dream of. Most of my cuts are a bit jagged, guess I had better lay off the caffene. Thinking of getting some mech gloves instead of welding gloves, this might help.

    Good to hear the plasma cutter's working well for you! :cool:

    Remember that a lot of the torch "tricks" such as using a straightedge can be applied to a plasma cutter. And, the more you practice the better your cutting gets. :)

    For cutting oddball shapes, here's a tip that DynaPlow posted in a different thread:

    Yes I saw that cardboard idea. My CAD CAM friend said it would be cool to get an old x-y plotter. You with me? Replace the pen with the torch and draw the piece on autocad. Ok so I think 8 steps ahead of my ability. Its fun.

    I have had my cutter for about 3-4 weeks. It is super handy, probably use it 2-3 times a week and we're still out in the field. Can't wait till winter shop season is here. cut weld paint repeat.
