yet another welding question
for small home welding jobs, e.g. building a security gate etc., will i be needing a PLASMA CUTTER to cut the materials or will i be able to get away with just a grinder, hacksaw, or a sawzall ?

Plasma cutters are nice, but in my opinion, to justify the cost you need to use them alot. I have a Portoband, and saws-all that I use alot. I would love to have a plasma cutter but I know I would not use it enough to pay for it.

Ayuh,..... I Agree....

For the Grand that a Plasma Cutter costs,...
You can have Alot of other tools that'll do the Same Job....

I have a cheap miter saw with a metal cutting blade for small jobs. It works great, but if you use it allot you will go broke buying metal cutting blades. I got a cheep Ryobi on sale for $89.00. I wouldn't buy a good one, all of the abrasive material destroys the saw.
