  • Plasma Cutting

    Looking for options on a metal cutter. I just do not want to rent (or buy) acetylene cylinder and oxygen cylinder. I have a 14 inch chop saw, but looking for something to cut patterns out of 1/16 up to 1/4 plate steel. I do like the Plasma cutting method, but they are over $1000.00 bucks (with the build in compressor). Is there any other options to look at?

    Thanks in advance.

          When he ruled out acetylene and oxygen I ruled out all oxy/fuel cutting. Was going to include hammer & chisel which would work but 1/8" to 1/4" is a little thick cold.

              Thanks for all the advise.

              What would be the cheapest way to setup a plasma
              I am sure alot of folks here have different configurations.

              Thanks

                  What about a phaser?

                  Not sure what setting he used but Captain Kirk successfully cut through many a bulkhead with his phaser.
