My first plasma cutter and I am not disappointed. Using a straight edge, this machine cuts fast and clean through 1/8 inch mild steel, which is what I will be predominantly cutting. Purchase an air filter with it to filter your compressed air and some #5 shades and you're good to go. It is made in America. 5 stars.

I have never plasma cut before this machine and I can tell you ,this machine is very easy to use. I have cut 1/4 in steel with ease. Haven't used my oxy fuel torch since I picked up this great machine and its made entirely in the USA.
