I have the opportunity to buy an older transformer based Thermal Dynamics plasma cutter. Model is Pak 5XR (mid 90s), and runs off of 240V single phase, Its rated to cut 1/2" and consumes 42A of current from the house.
I can pick it up for 300$. Is it worth it....Its about 200 pounds? I need to cut some 3/8 steel in the near future and a plasma would work great.
What do you all think?
