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.

Default I bought a plasma cutter

They have come way down in price as to what they cost 10 years ago.

I'll give my opinion of it after it arrives and I have tried it out

I bought a Herocut 55 amp. It will run on 120 or 240. It is supposed to cut up to 3/4". Its made in China, but about all of them are except Miller.

Herocut is a company that has been around for several years unlike most of the brands on eBay and Amazon.

My plasma cutter pretty much replaced my oxy acetylene cutting torch for cutting steel. Sad that niqqer gangsters protected by a blak female deputy sheriff stole it, along with most of my shop equipment.

Same here. I haven't used mine for cutting since I got a cordless angle grinder. Also I haven't used my arc welder much since I got a Lincoln mig welder.

Damn that pisses me the frig off every time you bring that up .
We Vets here are working on an old 61 military jeep I bought were fixing up. Yours was frigging beautiful. I will probable donate it to the VFW.
NOT talking computer tough but if they ever did that here they best leave the frigging state.
Within reason now our Sheriff's dept. is good old boys and will turn a blind eye to a pay back get em. They will do the paperwork.

I have a Vevor 60 amp. I have not cut anything over 1/4" but works well. I think I paid less than $200.00 for it. It is pilot arc which is a great feature if you are cutting rusted or painted metal.

The one I bought has a pilot arc. Without that it is difficult to start a cut on painted or heavily rusted metal.

Nuke ~ Did I Say Monkey When A Wrench/Wench Will Do Just Fine? ~

I don't know what I'd do with a plasma cutter; now, a CNC machine with tooling...that I can relate to...maybe throw in a Swiss screw machine for shits & giggles; did I mention that one of my grand sons is enrolled in College studying to become a machinist? (Bought him a bunch of Starrett & Mitutoyo tools for his first tool box/class).

My dad bought me one of the small 55 amp Chinese made plasma cutters a couple years ago. It doesn't work too well on 110 volt, but on 220 volt it will cut 1/4 inch material all day. It will cut up to 1/2" pretty easily, but when you get to 3/8" and thicker you have to move pretty slow. I ended up buying a Thermal Dynamics machine and it is the bee's knees.
