Looking at buying a plasma for the house, obviously I would like a Hypertherm, but hard to justify the cost for what little use it will really see here. what others have you guys have good luck with in the 50 Amp range?

Ill have to see what brand i have. But me and my dad bought it together about 15 years ago and its still going strong. Want to say we only spent like $1000 on it if I remember right.

would a plasma be a good tool to cut a blazer body into a buggy or is it too messy? too many rough edges?

I think a combination of a plasma and a sawzall would be best. cutting torch for the really think pieces.

Luckily I have a hypertherm pm65. Love it. Work the hell out of it and it keeps asking for more. I will find out what a buddy of mine gas though. He lives it and said it was very reasonable price wise. Only reason I have the hypertherm is for use with the plasma table.
