    Surround for AC unit

    I finally finished the panels that make up the surround for an AC unit. A whole lot of torch work but it's finally done.

    Looks good. Did you try running the torch faster to lessen the amount of dross?

    I could have done that, easily!







    On my CNC plasma table. Never in a million years could I do it freehand. Run a circular saw down a chalk line and stay within a 1/16", sure, freehand torch or plasma, forget about it.

    Nice job.
    It would be cool to see it installed.

    I gave up after the first one and went back to the torch. Maybe because I'm just used to using a torch but I just couldn't stay with the line well with the plasma. It seems to me that the plasma torch handle does not lend itself well to free hand cutting. The long torch with the long tubes allows me to go faster and make more accurate cuts, especially on the curves. Cleaning up the cuts didn't take any longer with the torch cuts than the plasma so I stayed with it. There was a little straightening needed on the 11 ga. plate on the torch cut panels though.
