    Re: Razorweld plasma cutter

    Just spent four hours using a 5" bosch grinder and a type 27, several type 27 cutoff disks as my main, or my only source of cutting today, I'd be alot less likely to be picky over a cutter or a torch at this point.. Lol.. If anyone would like to discuss the ins and outs of grinding disks and cut off wheels, lemme know because I have way too much experience in that category, hopefully soon I can discuss a hypertherm 45 and have some experience with that as well, I've had it with trying to cut everything like this.. Damn...

I don't believe the Powermax45 has been through the exact same testing as it is an older product as compared to the Duramax style torch. Eventually the 45 will have a torch upgrade...it is in the works.

    Checking with our team, and with feedback from the 106,000 Powermax45's that are in the field, the replacement rate on the torch body and plastic components is low compared to previous designs we have used. So, the 45 torch will likely not go through any revisions updates, but ultimately the replacement torch will be similar to the existing Duramax torch that has been used for 6 years on the Powermax65, 85 and 105 systems.

    Could I fit the torch head that I have of the powermax 45 with one of those newer Duramax handle covers??Is the torch head diameter and inside fittings the same or similar???

    Re: Razorweld plasma cutter

    No....completely different torches. The Powermax45 is a plunger style blowback torch...the Duramax is a spring electrode blowback. Completely different dimensionally. I am not sure why you are worried about the Powermax45 torch body....it is rare to have issues with it...and there are a lot of them in the field. If you make it fail under normal use I would like to see it....and I will personally buy you a new torch handle!

    LOL... I dont think I will have trouble. I take very good care of my belongins in a little OCD way. The Duramax torch just look cooler. Aesthetics mainly. Even knowing that the 45 plastic seem more brittle to me wont make that the only thing to decide to keep it or not. But I will take your word in case it ever brakes.

    Re: Razorweld plasma cutter

    I'm pretty sure Thermal Dynamics sl60 torch could be adapted to the razorweld machine also.. Seems like when I owned one of the budget Longevity 40amp plasmacutters, I was looking at converting an sl60 torch to it for my cnc plasma machine and it could be done with an adapter. I decided against it as the torch cost was too high to put on the cheaper Longevity unit. I ended up selling the Longevity with the trafimet style torch and buying a Thermal Dynamics Cutmaster 52. Thinking back on it, I was also considering adapting the Techmo torch because it would have been much cheaper, but at the time I couldnt find a supplier in the US for just the torch, it seems like a short time later I started seeing the Techmo torches showing up on the imported machines...

    Anyone that says the Trafimet torch isnt a good torch is just wrong, they work, they are simple, consumables are cheap and they last pretty good for a hobbyist to even a small business owner... The machine and torch I had would cut 1/4" steel reliably and with excellent cut quality, nearly looked like it had been milled with a milling machine. There are probably pics on this forum somewhere where I posted the cut speeds and results.. It surprised me how well it cut for a cheap chinese produced unit and torch..

    Re: Razorweld plasma cutter

    Has anyone set up one of these Razorweld plasma cutters (30 or 45) on a CNC table? I'm considering the 30 for mine and would love to hear from someone that's done it.

    Thank you!

    Re: Razorweld plasma cutter

    I know this is an old thread, but if anyone is interested in the Razorweld Razor Cut 45 Plasma it is currently available on Amazon at $500 w/free shipping. Currently showing 8 available. I pulled the trigger on one at that price. This is about $300 cheaper than I've seen it advertised elsewhere. Just FYI - I have no affiliation with the seller whatsoever. I own a Razorweld Tig and have been more that happy with it.

    Re: Razorweld plasma cutter

    Price goes up as soon as someone makes a purchase. Amazon has some really weird pricing systems. Often the price will then drop over time until the next one is sold. It's $800 now. You got the deal.

    Added some stuff to my cart and as soon as I went in to pay the price was higher, so I didn't order or pay for the stuff. Amazon has been using the "bate and switch" thing on pricing a little to much lately.

    Turns out it wasn't legit. Seller cancelled order for 'technical reasons'. Seller apparently has a history of this. I filed a complaint with Amazon though I don't expect it to do much good......Ama-scam.

    Re: Razorweld plasma cutter

    Seems like the Thermal Dynamics are the real deal with Prime.. I picked this one up today for under $690.00 Be here on Thursday. I really needed another plasma like a hole in my head.. I used them when the first model came out, and it's a quality Korean made unit I like the standard PCH42 torch, and pretty cheap 9-6500/01 nozzles,etc.. Electrodes are a bit spendy, but last much longer then non-sureloc type. Nicer trigger then the one torch, so sweet machine to use.. Heavier then a Hypertherm 30 air, but for the $1000.00 diffrence i will lug it around.

    I wanted one for a long time, but they always get swooped up when down in the sub $1000.00 range.. Good deal for a grand even..

    Re: Razorweld plasma cutter

    some items I have purchased on amazon...there is a review for them

    I have learned when I review an item, my reviews are rejected.

    So now, am very skeptical when I read any reviews...

    my 2 cents

    Same think happened to me on Ebay. Guy was selling a used powemax 45XP for $500. I immediately pulled the trigger. About 5 minutes later I received a warning from Ebay that they de-listed the seller for suspicious behavior. About a week later I got a full refund. The seller's email and contact information turned out to be fake.

    Louie,
    seems to me the very first model (without the built air drier ) was right at $1,600 I believe they climbed a few hundred over the 12/13 years since thy have been out.. Hard to get a real price on the net for these units. All I know it $680.00 works for me..

    Re: Razorweld plasma cutter

    We all got deals on the Amazon 60i. machines. I turned one into a Cincinnati universal mill,and another into a free 15 hp motor for a phase converter to run the two $400 3 phase 60i machines I have now.. Amazon has treated me well on these things..By the way,wired my mill to add a extra 5hp to the phase converter capacity. giving me a nice adaptable 3 phase converter.. The 15 hp motor is a quiet sweet running motor, and punches well above most of the 15hp rotary you buy.. full output cutting 1.5 MS using the 3 phase 60i.. really good piercing with the 3 phase units..

    I kind of wanted a 240 volt single phase plasma cutter, and the Air-Cut 35C should do pretty well on my MQ 6000 genny.. Might not get full output, but could be a pretty good system just the same.. Trying to get as most as I can out of the genny i have. Esab 160 caddy-mig runs super nice on it, and can I weld stick in the 140 amp range with the 6000 watts. (most small inverters) Usually get about 30 amps plasma ,and small compressor running on the 6000 watt genny also.. Those mid size machines do pretty well for things I might do around here. I bought the mint MQ from Ebay, for my well pump, and just match my welding machines to run well of of it.. These are tough/ quality Japan built genny's (Honda engine)

    Re: Razorweld plasma cutter

    Hi guys.
    I just bought a cheap cnc machine.
    Not knowing much about cnc in the first place, I was hoping to connect my Razorcut 45 to the cnc. Now I am told it wont work as i need a special plug.

    Has anyone been able to use the Cut45 on a cnc perhaps?

    Or am I asking in the wrong thread?

    Thank you in advance.

    Sure you can use the Razorweld on a CNC table. If its the older one all you need is to hook the trigger wires to the CNC control box. If its the newer one with the CNC ports I think the trigger wires are pins 3 and 4 on the 4 pin plug,( but not 100% sure on the pins) to the CNC control box.

    Thank you for replying Mechanic416.

    I was following your comments in this thread and was hoping you might reply.

    Just came back from the Unimig repair/sales specialist and the technician opened up my unit to see if they can just retrofit the cnc plug.
    They say no, i have to buy a new machine.

    This is the machine I have.
    Do I only need the trigger switch wires?
    Am only getting the cnc machine either this week or the next depending on customs.
    The cnc has a seperate torch height controller which I am told is important to hook up to the plasma machine.

    I feel a steep learning curve coming up.

    Re: Razorweld plasma cutter

    Your plasma cutter will work fine. To fire the torch with the CNC you only need the trigger wires from the plasma cutter to the control box. For the torch height control depending on what kind it is should come with information on how to hook it up. You may or may not need to get a add on module for the plasma cutter to the torch height controller.

    Re: Razorweld plasma cutter

    More information on your CNC controller would make it easier to figure out how to hook it up. Without that, just guessing.
