    Got mine!

    My Force Cut LP50D came Tuesday and I've been playing around ever since. Glad I bought the Longevity. Shipping was incredibly fast and the machine works great right outta the box. I was lamenting for 2 months about which unit to buy. I had to buy Chinese due to price and had 3 in mind. Why Longevity? Lots of replies from Simon on this forum tells me the guy actually cares about customer satifaction. Also before I made the decision, I called the 2 other dealers and Longevity actually answered the phone, everytime I called.
    So...the machine cuts like a dream. I really hope they start selling some sorta stand off guide. I keep finding myself dragging the torch over the material. I know this can't be good for consumables. Which brings me to my only "sort of" complaint. I only recieved 2 extra sets of consumables. I really don't think that's enough to get a guy started. I never asked how many came with it, but I assumed it would be similar to what the other guys are supplying. No big deal.
    My oxy/acet tanks are getting picked up Monday. No more monthly rental fees. GOOD RIDDANCE you filthy, messy torch.
    I'm really pleased with the whole deal.....and I'm generally miserable!

    ctmike, I am jealous... I've been trying to get cash together for months, already made my mind up about getting one. I've been following things too, glad to see a positive response. Few positive experiences get reported because they are happy and just fade away.

    *only recieved 2 extra sets of consumables" - the current LP50D page states:
    "Consumables: 3 piece tips, 3 piece electrodes, 3 piece gas diffuser, 3 piece shield cups" included
    I assume 1 of the 3 sets is installed on the gun.

    *really hope they start selling some sorta stand off guide"
    I can suggest adapting an after market brand to fit, about $30. or make one. Not much to them, a couple of adjustable wheels clamped on.

    "No more monthly rental fees. GOOD RIDDANCE you filthy, messy torch"
    I own a B-prestolite acetylene and 1ea 80cuft oxy and 2ea 40cuft oxy, I only pay for refills.In time, the initial expense pays back. Keep the torch setup, Plasma does not completely replace it, but it sure as heck will make refills much much less frequent.

    Enjoy

    Gee Mike, sounds like you may have been shorted on those consumables. Try phoning Simon. I assmume your talking 2 complete sets of consumables. If your new to plasma cutting and you dragging your torch across the piece you'll be using the consumables faster.

    Simon did say that they were going to get some standoffs in. They do help maintain proper distance and a steady hand for a cleaner cut.

    Re: Got mine!

    Hi Everyone,

    ctmike, thanks for the honest review and choosing to do business with us. We appreciate you as a customer. To address some of your concerns, the units only come with 3 total pieces of each consumable unless an extra kit of consumables is purchased. We do include the longer consumable tips that are also used with Esab torches.

    As far as the spacers, we will have them hopefully by end of next week. For all torches up to 100amps!

    Please contact us so we can have a quote on the price. The standoff will definitely help with consumable life and the straightness of the cut.

    Thanks,

    Simon

    Welcome, ctmike!

    Simon, could you upload a picture of these new standoffs? I'd love to see it. Also, can you give a general idea of the price range? Thanks!

    Thank you, Simon. That looks like it could be a great help. Does this guide also provide the electrical contact needed to start?

    Thanks,

    Specter: click on the image of the torch that looks like a burned rattle snake. A popup window should show up with a larger view.

    Re: Got mine!

    Thanks Holger.

    I just got my new Force Cut LP-80 amp replacement unit and that tricked out rolling standoff sure looks would help maintain proper spacing and a steadier hand allowing for a cleaner looking cut.

    add on:I see its mounted on the 100amp torch. My only question is will it also fit the smaller amp torches?

    I guess so. Simon says: "As far as the spacers, we will have them hopefully by end of next week. For all torches up to 100amps!"

    Re: Got mine!

    Hi All,

    The spacers are actually a bit smaller. So the 100amp torch actually can fit a few smaller torches such as the 80amp, but the 40/50/60amp torches actually have smaller guides.

    They will arc with no problems. Sorry to not reply earlier.
