    I was in my garage taking pics of parts on my air compressor to help answer a question on the Garage forum here, when I just decided to take a pic of my 1 month old Plasma Cutter.
    I've been practicing using this thing on 1/4" scrap to 16 gauge scrap I had laying around since I got it...let me tell you...a world a difference versus my Oxy Acety....My Oxy Acety torch will still serve a purpose, but just for heating purposes only now or 1" + cuts... /forums/images/graemlins/weld.gif
    I have the finecut kit for this Pcutter, and it cut the 16gauge so clean and quick, it hardly looked liked it was cut with flames. Looked like it was a piece of paper cut with scissors /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif (ie. NO Warpage /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif)

    Here is just a pic of my 2nd welder, MM210...it's a couple years old though...My my Crapsman Pro 150 is strictly used for sheetmetal now.

    I have the same Hypertherm 1000 plasma cutter; one of my best purchases. My next purchase is either going to be a Miller MIG or TIG, it all depends on how I feel on the day of the purchase. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    No doubt dude, that is one badass PC.
    From what I hear, if you can TIG, go for it!
    I may get a TIG one day, in the far far future, but for now, this MIG is handling business!
