Plasma Cutter Suggestions?
 
Hey guys

I have a question for anyone willing to help. Any and all suggestions welcome! :thumbsup:. Does anyone know of a plasma cutter to suggest?

I have a few projects I want to work on on my spare time, and would love to get one that works great, but, am not looking to break the bank either. Any ideas? Customer support is also important to me, so finding a company that can help me out fairly quickly is a big plus. Thanks!

How much cutting are you really going to be doing? Plasma cutters are great but I would only purchase one if your are going to be doing a lot of cutting over several years.. How thick of steel are you cutting? Maybe an acetylene torch would be a more affordable option. A little harder to cut a perfect line, but with a little practice, a 4'' grinder, you should be good to go.

I agree 100% with Copper
also you would also need to use it often to justify even a lower cost model.
