    i just want an all in one machine that doesn't fail.

    Plasma, tig, mig, and stick.

    The ultimate back up machine for any shop.
    12v battery, jumper cables, and a 6013.

    Um, no...

    There are other name brand reputable machines on the market. Esab, Lincoln, Miller, that make plasma cutters. Hypertherm is not the only game in town. I have a Hypertherm and my next one is going to be Esab.

    It will cost you $1,800 to do it the hard way.
    The hard way: Buy the cheap junk, it frys then you buy the hypertherm.
    The easy way: Buy the hypertherm, once.
    Why roll the dice with $600?

    These cheap 40 amps machines are a curse to the consumer plasma cutter market.

    I had an esab before I got my hypertherm and I only got the hypertherm because my cnc table couldn't run the esab (according to plasmacam). I only used it a few times but the esab cut great even with the beat up (looked to be original) consumables on it.

    Your LWS will carry consumables for hypertherm and one other.
    The most common combination I see is hypertherm and miller by far.
    How is essb for replacement parts?
    Lack of individual replacement parts is why I am not going to buy miller again.

    For example my miller plasma, if I need any torch parts aside from standard consumables I have to buy the entire $600 or $700 torch assembly.
    old Miller spectrum 625
    Lincoln SP-135 T, CO2+0.025 wire
    Miller model 250 and WP-18V torch
    Craftsman 100amp AC/DC and WP-17V torch
    Century 115-004 HF arc stabilizer
    Home made 4 transformer spot welder
    Home made alternator welder

    The Victor Cutmaster looks like a decent choice too for the price.
