    Finally ordered Powermax30 XP -- can't wait to use it!

    I finally ordered this little bad boy with its case over the weekend. It should serve me well, as a DIY welder. I may also order the deflector. I wanted to buy American and support the Silicon Valley economy and my LWS, so it cost me, but I consider it a good investment all around. Can't wait to use it!

    It's the truth though. It's amazing how much steel the guys go thru once you show them how easy it is to cut things out with the plasma cutter. I've seen them sit and spend all night carving up steel playing with one. Usually after the 1st dozen or so pieces I have to ask that they at least carve up some of the welded stuff out of the scrap can vs cutting up all the new stock.

    Picked it up today, from right off the shipping pallet. The owner of the LWS texted me when the pallet arrived (what a bud!). Anyway, I'll try it out in the next couple of days and post some photos and comment about my first impressions.

    In that case, I'll show some restraint and commit to keeping my fun carving to a Baker's Dozen! :-)
