Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

The primary reason I bought was to cut the hangers off my trailer so I can install heavier springs. I'm sure I'll find lots of uses for the machine.

I am sure you will. I use mine all the time. I have cut steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, and brass with mine. Pretty much the only thing I use an oxy/acetylene rig for anymore is to spot heat to bend.

Well, being the 'sales sucker' that I am and owing gifts to a SIL & Grandson I looked on Amazon and ended up buying them a LOTOS LTP500D, 50 Amp...it was on sale for about $95 off and the reporting on it looked good...it'll be handy for the Grandson to learn from as he is enrolled in a machinist class at Renton CC...I just love doing shit like this!

Plus an air dryer.
I bought the smallest Hypertherm with a built in air compressor and dryer, a 30Amp, but should have bought the 45Amp version. I was a cheapskate.

Most of the Chinese ones come with a small water filter. I also have a double filter for spray painting.

Yes. It cut through a piece of 3/8" steel like a knife through warm butter.

So happy to hear that. One of the things I get stuck on are the Amazon reviews...I never really know if the 5 star reviews are shills and the 1 star reviews are a bunch of chicom agitators trying to point folks elsewhere to their chicom products

One way to tell is if the reviews have sequential dates one after the other like all within a few weeks or the same month.
Company tells their employees to go home and brag how good the damn junk is.

ADD: Someone posted here to not look at the 'good reviews' but the bad ones.

I always head for the one star reviews first, then compare those with the two and three stars to see if there is a consistent pattern
