    Plasma is a different tool dedicated to cutting/gauging only.

    You gotta have all three!
    Personally I don't like propane for heat shrinking, I'd ratter use acetylene.
    Donít pay any attention to me
    Iím just a hobbyist!

    I guess O/A is the jack of all trades: cut, heat, weld.

    Plasma is great for cutting., but it's a one trick pony. Just does that very, very well and it's quick.

    Oxy/propane is great for heating and cutting, but not welding.

    Of the three, only O/A can weld (AFAIK) but it doesn't look like O/A welding is used much any more, there are better (quicker, easier, cheaper) ways.
