Hey guys, I will be looking into buying a plasma cutter :D whithin the next couple of months, end of April at the latest. :rolleyes: I have been looking for something that runs on 115V, most of the cuts i will be making will be 1/16"-3/8" MAX, I was looking at the Miller Spectrum 375, are there any other machines in the same ability range? I have an O/A rig for cutting anything thicker so I don't need anything 230V.

I dont have first hand experience with the Spectrum but, when I was searching out info before my plasma purchase, I read several posts on different sites that stated the Millers tend to eat consumables alot faster than other brands.
I went with HyperTherm based on this info. Ive cut in the neighborhood of 100' of 1/4" plate before having to change "tips".
For the garage hack, thats alot of plate.
Im happy with it.

Panoz has a nice plasma cutter for sale at a pretty good price.
I thought I had it sold for him earlier, but the guy lost mad money to other bills.

yeah I saw the one panoz has, I thought it was 230V though, i'm only looking for 115V. As far as the Miller using consumables more often, i've heard that too. I just took a quick look at the HyperTherm site and would be interested in the Powermax380, but I will still shop around.

I've been very happy with my Thermal Dynamics Cutmaster 38, runs on 120/230 v. and came with a kit including 3 extra drag tips, 3 electrodes and 2 extra "o"rings, in addition to the original ones on the torch.
The going price appears to be $1082 from Cyberweld and Ram -- I got mine from Cyberweld, without tax or shipping charges --saving about $ 250 from local stores.
